If you don't it would severly damage your integrity, honesty, and probably prevent you from obtaining a position involving national security.

    you may be confused if you want to but your telling me you never fibed on anything? yeah right this is reality all I said is see what's in the file first if there isn't anything damaging in there why damage his chance to change and have a career? would you like it if you were in that position and a job was taken away from you because of a mistake you made that wasn't in your file but your big mouth disclosed it? telling the truth is a must is most situation but if there is nothing there why should you put your career on the line? when you come to reality let me know!

    • Merlin, I was offered a TO back in October 08 went to pre-academy and to FLETC for a short time and had to withdraw for personal reasons. I reapplied under the recent announcement on the 6th using my old test score...all my quals are still good they expire November of this year. Do I have to wait until the announcement closes on the 26th of this month in order to be back in the inventory? and since I'm cleared on everything I know that will transfer over but will they consider me faster since I'm cleard on everything?

          I do live in reality, which is why I think he should disclose it. He was fired, according to his post, and no longer works there, how will he know what his file says? Should he not get a second chance, I never felt that or feel that he should not get considered for the job. Chances are that most people have made a mistake, or two. Maybe they were caught, maybe they weren't. And yes, there maybe people who haven't done anything wrong. However when asked about breaking the law, most of the questions are talking about what you've done in the past ten years or since the age of eighteen. When approached with that, I have not done anything. This person asked should they or should they not disclose this. He will be out of luck if he doesn't and they grab his employment record and see he was fired for theft. If he discloses it and tells them about it, he has a fighting chance. Better to go down swinging instead of watching the ball go by for strike three.

            • For those who have recently graduated from FLETC.......

              I see there are three pre-entry tests you must pass (weight lift, step test, kneel test?)

              What type of PT is conducted at the training facility?

              My police academy training consists of 300m runs, 1.5 mile runs, BP, and sit-ups....

              I'm unable to find any additional information on the CBP site

              All help would be appreciated

              Thanks!

                Baseball, a game consisting two teams playing nine players each on a diamond shaped field. It's pretty popular here, as in other parts of the nation. I am sure gamestop has a video game version of it.

                I am not looking for ******* contest here. I was just trying to make the point that he might be out of it if he does disclose it, but if he doesn't and they find out, he will be done. The BI will talk to a lot of people and maybe somebody will say oh yea he got fired for stealing, whether or not it is in his file, it will be addressed due to that one source. That's all I am trying to say. Not looking to make anyone angry or use a lot of periods.

                  I am not a graduate, but I do have my TO packet as I just completed filling it out. According to that, you can expect to do the following while attending the Customs and Borders Protection Field Operations Academy.

                  1. Complete a 1.5 mile run in 15 minutes or less.

                  2. Participate in training activities including: warm ups, calisthenics, flexibilty training, partner assisted stretching techniques, cardiovascular conditioning, running on roads and trails, spinning classes, resistance training(using both free weights and machines) and hitting and striking activities.

                  3. Testing components include:
                  Weight and Body Composition
                  Sit and Reach
                  Bench Press
                  Shuttle Run
                  1.5 Mile Run

                  Take that with a grain of salt though, I thought things were going to change for the PFR's begining in October of 2009, but I could be mistaken.

                              Your TO probably says that cause it will take a lil while until u go to TSU and get the call...and you won't be considered til the ending of this year. You still have to do all your paperwork and medical stuff.
