  • Met with Bi yesterday and he advised that my packet was due today. He's coming to interview some of my co-workers today, as well. Also was notified by previous employers that they have already been there and pulled my records, too. Still haven't done the poly yet, but it's nice to see more movement. Hoping to get it all wrapped up and be able to get into a class in the next few months.

    Anyone else do their Bi before their poly? With other agencies it seemed the other way around. Poly then BI.

      They will NEVER do a background before a poly. A background costs WAY more than a poly so if you're one of the lucky ones either you have a clearance that they accepted or the dropped the ball. Looks like you're good to go and don't ask anymore about it till you graduate the academy

        They are doing my BI now, and it was supposed to be turned it before July 1st. No polygraph scheduled to this day.

    • Has anyone filled out their locations and have gotten some of the one's that they have picked? TIA

          Awesome. I had my poly last week and meeting with my BI this afternoon. Hopefully I get an interim Clearance since I already have a TS.

          I’m hoping for the 6/23 academy class date. Fingers crossed

          JTemple I received my SF-86C and office of preference forms today. Have you heard anything since you sent yours back?

          Justwaiting22 that's awesome. Nothing yet, but I still have not been able to do final PT because my recruiter is out of town. Cutting it close...

        • Does anyone by chance have a phone number to an HR contact where we could inquire on the status of our processing?

            Was told that my background was completed and I need to schedule my pt-recert. I was also emailed the updated SF-86 forms/location preference forms. Haven’t been told if I’m being looked at for June or August... back to being patient again :-)

        • Hey gents, it’s been silent on my end. Last time I checked with my recruiter to ask the status of my BI he said it will be processed, and you will he contacted. So I guess I’ll just keep working out and waiting

              Oh really? I haven’t received anything. Does it mention anything about a class date or anything?

              No mention of class date. Hoping to still be on pace for June.

          • Got the call for June class. I'm a 2018-1 applicant but I figured it might encourage some to know calls are going out.

              Congrats! I assume you got the call today? Did you get any of your location preferences? I submitted my location preference/updated sf-86 about three weeks ago, still waiting to here back

              Thank you! Yes I did get the call this morning. Unfortunately I did not get any of my preferred locations, but such is the nature of the job and that's what I signed on for. Does not dampen my spirits in the least.

              Congrats on the call! Still waiting on polygraph, but meeting BI again tonight to clarify some stuff. It's crazy how some people's process move faster than others. Are you current 1811? Again, congrats and good luck in the academy.

              Thanks! Yes the variation in timing for each applicant is wild. Longest part of my timeline was waiting for the poly too. I am not current 1811, no prior security clearance. Thank you and good luck to you as well!

          • I have had no word. I am a 2017 applicant and took my poly back in October. Only word I can get in mine is still in background. Have had a TS since 2007.

              Same here, I asked and they said it will be processed and I will be contacted (background)

          • Of those that are attending Class 220, did one of you happen to get Eugene Oregon?
