      Did you get a NOPA for the Dui's?

      • update #2
        went to VBT test early morning. It is wierd.. and i think i did fine.

        talk to the officer briefly, and he said LA port is in-need of officer. and it had been hiring.. and express the process. that's what impression that he is giving me. 25 people just got in the port today, those are probably from 1.5 years ago?! since July 08 people just got to EFLET like 2 weeks. I believe they will still express the process for may be few more terms..but after that... not sure... i believe (just me) the window is closing.. to get in FAST..so.. hurry up and pass up coming test!!!

        shout out to people give me some insight on VBT test.. i want to say "thank you"!!

        went to physical and medicial afternoon.
        eye, hearing.. everything is fine.. and there is no problem yes. i have a 20/20 without surgery.. jealous? lol

        fitness ... also there is no problem...

        Dr. Said i pass everything... so i am not too worry...

        that's it from now... so... hopefully get few more update real soon!

        Peace out

          Well, I’m going to have to disagree with you.

          A NOPA can be issued for any offense that would indicate a pattern and practice of inappropriate behavior, including speeding, and regardless of whether it’s disclosed properly to IA or not. Part of this job is driving G-rides at work, after all. I don’t think there’s all that many people who would view 6 tickets in 3 years as anything less than approaching recklessness and a disregard for the law.

          Speed laws were written to promote public safety. It’s well established that excessive speed KILLS people…daily.

          Even if it’s possible to get around the number of tickets, the timing still is a problem. The ticket from July, 08 is from well after he applied. IMO, it’s sort of hard to argue how he’s learned from his past, turned over a new leaf, and become personally responsible and accountable for his actions when he has at least one offense out there dated from well after he applied for a law enforcement position.

          I'd expect a NOPA at least, with a fairly difficult road to take to overcome it.

            USCG, yeah, its a big leap, but Im sure it'll be worth it. Im one of the millions that got laid off so I kinda have nothing to lose but Im crazy excited to get started. Good luck and best wishes to you and your family.
            Draven, thank you very much. Good luck to you as well and no sweat, just sit back and relax. You eventually will be part of the team also!

              From July of 08...I imagine that they're still all valid.


              Geographic Location Codes: During the registration process for the written test, candidates will be asked to enter one (1) geographic code where they would be willing to work. Please note, when selecting a code, the applicant must be willing to work at any duty location that falls within that code's jurisdiction. Applicants who pass the written test and want to change their geographic location code at some later point, but before being tentatively selected, will be allowed to change their code by submitting their request in writing. If selected for a location, the applicant will be removed from the CBP Officer register. Selectees will be required to pay all relocation expenses to the initial duty station. If you are offered a CBP Officer position within the geographic location that was listed on your tentative selection offer letter and you decline the offer, you will have to wait until the next open period to re-apply.

                  2 DUI's back in '00 and '01, and have a completed BI in full ( not interim or any of that suprise b.s ). Just be honest on your SF86 and dont sweat it.

                  I would be suprised if either of you made it.

                  I could be wrong, but geez...

                  And I am not saying anything derogatory about you. (you could be the finest citizen now since sliced bread for all I know)We have had a problem with intergrity recently though. "They" might want to tighten things up a bit. Food for thought..

                    I tried to tell my BI about a speeding ticket I got last year but he kind of blew it off like it didn't matter and we never got back to it.

                      No, but maybe thats because it was like 8 and 9 years ago. Thats why i cant imagine speeding tickets being a problem as long as you disclose them.

                        Well i may have spoken harshly saying the DO NOT care, but its not a big deal. I guess of course it all depends on the whole picture of the applicant and whoever so happens to work your case. Like i said ive had 2 BI's for CBP and never got a NOPA for anything, so i assumed parking tickets wouldnt be the issue since they'd have bigger fish to fry. Who the heck knows though?

                          Then you would be suprised to know that my BI is cleared and they said its "not interim waivered, its fully cleared". Best news I've heard in a while.

                          • Does any one know if being in the military reserves while working as a CBP Officer or any Federal LE type job helps or hurts?
                            I might be able to get a bonus for reenlisting but I wouldn't make that commitment if it might hurt what will hopefully become my career. I am joining EOD on Mar 16 and going to FLETC in Apr. The drop dead date for the bonus is Sept 30.

                            Thanks for any sugestions.

                            • Basically shows who they will hire then if you have had that many DUI's, but then again, it's only a security clearance. All you are doing is talking with some contract BI, who then turns in their findings to get paid. However the whole "I don't give a crap" mentality won't fly to well at FLETC or when you are on the job. Good luck.

                                You referring to me? Just asking because I never said one thing about not giving a crap and have been through CBP training at FLETC already and it's not that tough.
