    • Actually in the photo with Officer Smith and Supervisor Self, and Officer Carter, Officer Carter is wearing the Class 2 and Officer Smith is wearing the Class 3 uniform.
      But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

      For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.

      • Is that a Beretta in Carter's holster? That and his web gear would place the photo around 2005, I'm guessing. They do have the new badges.

        If Self is a supervisor then she's dressing down. She's wearing journeyman epaulets.

        • She's also carrying what appears to be a GLOCK.
          "Officer, you are kinda hot."

          "And you are kinda intoxicated."

            The Glock 17(or very rarely the Glock 19) were standard Customs/CBP issue until they moved to the HK P2000 several years back. There are still many CBPO's with the Glock, including me. The Beretta was an INS gun. Those folks transitioned over to the P2000 not long after the HK was chosen. I'm guessing late '05-sometime '06.

            To make it more confusing, INS also issued the HK USP40.

              Yup yup. There are still agents with USPc that I see now and again at work. I've been told by a PFI up in your neck of the woods that their armory still has a bunch of Beretta's, GLOCKS, and HKs.
              "Officer, you are kinda hot."

              "And you are kinda intoxicated."

              • And apparently Air & Marine is ditching the P2000 because of corrosion issues and going back to the USP as a stopgap.

                  Bill Increasing Homeland Security's Budget Passes House


                  Associated Press
                  Thursday, June 25, 2009

                  The House passed, 389 to 37, a $44 billion spending bill last night that awards the Homeland Security Department a 7 percent budget increase, with money for more border patrol agents and for anti-piracy efforts off the coast of Somalia.

                  The measure would fund more than 20,000 border patrol agents, about double the number employed before the 2001 terrorist attacks. It also provides $10 billion for the Coast Guard, including $242 million in funding for operations in the Persian Gulf and against pirates off the coast of Somalia.

                  The measure also provides $1.1 billion to equip airports with explosives detection systems, almost double current funding.

                      Actually if you look at the various CBP posters floating around you'll notice the same officers in them and they don't always wear the same rank. All of the photos were taken on the same day. For instance the woman leading the line boarding the ship is either a 5 or 7 in that photo, but I've seen her also as an 11 in a couple. Officer Smith is shown in various photos also with different rank. If it is the same person, Self is an instructor at the academy now.

                      If the estimates cited earlier are correct, Smith is wearing the wrong insignia anyway, when he left I believe they stated he had been a CBPO for about 8 years and that was fall of last year. That would be 2001.

                        So...they're acting. Interesting.

                        I've some friends who work at Dulles who are often drafted to work in the VLC training videos. They were often seen as 13's and 14's when in reality they were 07's or 09's. I never thought they'd stage still photos that way though.

                        That's a guess on the dates. Since it's a staged shoot, I'm not sure any more. Those new badges they're wearing could be props. It might be a far older picture.
                        Still...the new badges were issued in the field during the late summer/fall of '04.. The P2000 started rolling out in the spring of '05, really got rolling with the mid-500 classes and by early '06 the Beretta users should have been converted. Those are definitely large-patch shirts and Carter is definitely wearing INS brass belt keepers. Large patches stopped being issued in late '05 and the INS leather gear was gone by the end of '05-beginning of 06.

                          Actually most of our legacy IIs still have the brass keepers at my port. I'm sure it's against policy but at least the new guys have an easy way of figuring out who to go to with immigration questions.

                            Sorry, I should have posted the actual bill instead of a news report as they only give a snapshot of the actual picture. See below a part of the actual bill:
