So I checked today, just a little click at the OTD tab, and lo and behold, there it was....Maybe the third page? Anyway, not to far into the policy, there it was.

    Oh, and as far as limiting officers in their ability to carry, or shoot off duty....I do not know if local management can actually do that to an officer that is not under any diciplinary actions, or under investigation. That might be somewhere in left field.

    It is not in the policy. It is a memo out of the then Assist. Commisioner Ahern's office.

    • Expect an act of God to move anywhere, especially anytime during your first 4 years. Does it happen, yes. Does it happen frequently, no.

      Lots of unhappy folk come in thinking that they're moving after 3 years only to find themselves sitting in the same spot after 5 years. Even if you can move, you may be so limited as to where you can move that it's of little use to you.

      Bottom line, don't take a spot unless you're willing to work many years there. If you do move away from "home" to take a spot, don't expect to get back "home" easily...or maybe ever.

        Every CBPO i've talked to in the state of Michigan, has said they have never heard anything even close to that.

              That's one way of looking at it, probably the best way.

              It's often true in CBP that "the sqeaky wheel gets greased" while the meek and loyal get shafted.

                          all of us on the list already pass BI. We all are ready to go on FLETC. I believe you have to call someone on your case.. please ask yoda, merlin for advice. Sorry to hear that, but I believe you might be one of those people that your data stuck in some where in space.

                            "In TSU".. This is where you get to wait for your EOD (Entry on Duty) date.

                                Considering that there are absolutely no dorms at the West Virginia facility I doubt it. You stay in hotels when you go to the Harper's Ferry facility for advanced training.
