      If you apply to another agency in DHS.. and you currently have had a BI done in the past 5 years... does the agency where you're currently applying start a BI from scratch? Or use the past one?

      and secondly, can any information/ form that you submit to OPM be referenced and seen by every govt agency regarding hiring.. or do you have to re-submit the same forms again?

      any/ all information would be appreciated.
      1: It depends. They might decide to honor the past BI; they may decide not to.

      2: Expect to submit and re-submit nearly everything. Even when the old forms are easily available to your current/new agency, expect to do them all over again for up-dating purposes, if for nothing else.

If they call I will go.Seems to me the pay is better but I would have rather been called for CBPO.
        I thought NYPD had crap for salaries. What do they start at and how long would you have to work with NYPD to earn over 60K? For my geo with customs it would only be 2 years starting at GS-7.
        You shut your mouth when you're talking to me!

If TSU calls and leaves a message and I return their call within a few hours, am I safe? If I miss their call, am I simply out of the running for good? Does anyone know what area code they call from so I can at least watch for it? (Minneapolis, DC? etc?) Thanks!
              they call with an unavailable/blocked number
              and then they try your other numbers that you listed such as your house/work/cell
              the lady i spoke with said that they would call a good number of times to make sure they get a hold of you.

                They will also leave a voicemail.

                • I believe this has been addressed once before, but id like clarification on the matter since it wasnt really talked about

                  What is the security clearance given by CBP equivalent to? What im trying to figure out is how stringent the background investigation is because I am in the process of another job that requires a TS/SCI and I was wondering if I should expect the same process..

                  So what is the clearance for this job on the level of? i.e. what can it be compared to?

                    Its not a "secret/top secret" type clearance. It is a "Law Enforcement Sensitive" clearance. But, i had to do a Secret clearance for the military and it was all the same forms (EQUIP) on your end.

                    • The SF-82 is what it is, a Standard Form used by Federal Agenices and military to acheive some type of clearance for an employee (law enforcement or not) and servicemen/woman.

                      How that agency decides who and what type of clearance one will get is to them and the position one is applying with.

                      Usually if applying to another federal agency, each applicant, and yes those who are already employeed with the G, still have to fill out another SF-86.

                            Does anyone know if there is a way to attain secret or top secret clearance through CBP or would you have to transfer to another agency? The Washington masters program on intenational diplomacy and intelligence looks awesome, but it is only open to those with TSSC.

                              There is no such animal as a "law enforcement sensitive" clearance.


                              CBPO's are adjudicated at a TS level, but that does not mean the clearance is granted. If you do not have the need to have access to TS material, you won't be given the clearance. The "norm" for most officers is no clearance at all; most officers will almost never see anything above FOUO.

                                You may want to look elsewhere with the Govt if you are concerned about what type of clearance you will receive. For CBP, most do not get more then a FOUO. Other Feds get clearances based on their jobs as I have stated before.
