    And no I haven't been to all the ports in the world, impossible because I work full time.

    My opinion is that TSA at airports could be taught immigration and how to stamp, Airport CBPOs shouldn't be considered LE.
    Best thing I've heard all week.

      I had that problem too so I tried just typing in my numbers on the phone instead and it works 100% of the time. Of course then when I say yes it still can't understand me...

          They will never teach you in the Academy the human toll due to making a GS-5/7 nearly max out on OT in a FY.

          It takes a 5 two doubles (16 OT hours) to make what I make in 8 OT hours (one double).

          If you can't hang the first three years, your toast
          Is that the same at all POEs with lots of OT? That people quit mostly because they can't handle the workload not because of something else? I thought only some OT was mandatory, but most of it is given to those who want it. Have I heard incorrectly?

              Yeah, you don't walk around with a chip on your shoulder! Perhaps everyone here who's trying to become a CBPO should bowdown to you who did not apply to your port. Get a grip an bash someone's dream elsewhere! It's people like you who I have no desire working next to!!!

                Hey guy, sorry if I came off a little strong, but trust me you want someone like me next to you if crap hits the fan. Im not crushing anyone's dream and if your dream feels crushed by my OPINIONS, Im sorry. I guess what im saying is that im proud to work at Ysidro and I got a lot of heat for picking the port when I was at FLETC. SO please bro, grow thicker skin if you want to be in LE god knows youll need it. I wish you the best of luck.
                What if quotas did exist?!

                  PM me if you want to know more
                  Are you implying that only those POE's along the border with Mexico the only ones that should be considered as LEO's?
                  Do you seriously think that your job at your POE is that much more important than those anywhere else in the country?

                  If that is how you feel about your agency, then you might want to try for BPA, that way you can actually chase illegals in action... not just screen them while they try to enter the country through your port...

                  BTW
                  Nothing will prepare you to deal will desperation, and what people in other countries have to go through to try for a better life... We in the US are very lucky...

                  • Or try ICE Since ICE seems to step in at POE's such as San Ysidro on certain occasions.

                    Ex, why so harsh on your fellow LEO's that someday you may have to work with on TDY, etc?

                    • BP doesnt make as much as CBPO's yo guys should know that. I think theres a lot of sensitive future LEOs on this forum. I will refrain from giving my opinion in fear of crushing someones dreams.

                      • Actually, I do and have chased illegals on foot.

                          Working an airport or seaport is nothing but a different aspect of the same job. It takes a different skill set. You are correct that us airport and seaport cbpos are not rockin and rollin all day, but neither are all cbpos at land borders. We deal more with warrents, currency, and fraud docs. (and yes working a booth is part of the job) Also quite a few child porn and exploitation cases start out of some of these places. Often we are also involved with the movement of government vip's. It's ok to have pride in where you work, but dont bash your fellow officers when you have no idea what the work is like.
                          Don't tase me bro!!

                            Wow, all about money huh? Interesting. How about letting those who want to join CBP choose between BPA and CBPO?

                              Don't listen to a new guy like EXSDSO, or a Northern Border Walking Wikipedia like Merlin. Yoda sorry I don't know where you work. Everywhere is different and special and unique. However, this great nation was built on the freedom of speech and strong credit markets among other things, so I support these Officers for their input wether they are making very good points or giving out incorrect erroneous information.

                              But let me tell you, I've been here for 6 years. My unit was featured on the first episode of Homeland Security USA (signed a doc DID NOT WANT TO BE ON CAMERA). I can tell you young bucs with big dreams. This job is nothing like that show. You will not be high speed. You will not be [email protected]@@@ making major arrests all the time.

                              In time you will all learn on your own. Isn't that the funnest part about life - doing it for yourself and making your own minds!

                              Good Luck to all. And as soon as you get 11 get in the Enforcement Program, its the true 6C LEO coverage, don't let anyone fool you or tell you otherwise LOL

                                LOL! If you can handle yourself yes I would want you arount if the crap hits the fan, but before you judge other officers, you should know that many officers are former cops, military, paramedics, I even work along side of a few former special forces guys. Remember One Team One Fight. Stay safe bro.
                                Don't tase me bro!!
