      • I spoke with the background investigator today and she said my package was closed on May 9 and the suitability board for OPM approved it on May 31 and it was “received by section” on June 10. The lady at HQ said it is probably being looked at and it takes a couple weeks and then it is uploaded and then the process continues. So still not sure exactly where it is or what they mean but at least I have a little more info.

          No other update from OPM. They said my investigation closed on May 9 and was sent to DEA then. So it has been with them since then.

          I called OPM and they said they have no record of me for a sf86/eqip submission. However when I called HQ, they said my investigation is still open

          • Talked with HQ today. My package is waiting to be sent to the hiring panel. They could not tell me when that would be. So still waiting on my end. Looks like it’s going to be a long wait.

              Hear anything further on your end?

          • Applied in August of 2017, passed everything and did final PT test July 12th. I'm wondering if any of you guys have an inkling of an idea on when the next academy starts as I'm looking to quit my local LE job and have a few weeks off. I called recruiter two weeks after final PT and he said he was still waiting on Washington to tell him when to notify me. You guys are a wealth of information and I'm glad I finally found a forum for my needs.

            • The next class is August 18. The next after that is Sep 28.

                Great, but seeing as I haven't been told about the August one I don't think I'm attending that one. Thanks for your reply!

            • I was wondering if anyone knew where to look to help my situation. I applied and took the test May 2017. I Was told I passed and then progressed through all the steps of the process up until February of this year. I took my final PAT in February and then received my preference sheet, gearing up to get ready for the March academy. Then it went radio silence and I didn’t hear anything for several weeks. I emailed my recruiter and he told me that for some reason I was no longer eligible for an interim clearance and needed a full background. So fast forward a few months and I haven’t heard anything from any BI or anyone from DEA. I called the number for DEA Hq and all they could tell me was that I was still in the back ground phase. I called OPM and they said that my background had been sent back to DEA Hq last October because some info was missing. I contacted my recruiter again and he stated that all he could see was I was still in the background phase. Would anyone have any better direction on who to talk with about getting these last things knocked out? Thanks.

                When you call HQ, ask to speak to your assigned Suitability Specialist.

                Mine was in background from October of 2018 until about May 2019, took the longest and there were lots of long dark periods of no communication. Another long wait period is once background is done it goes to hiring panel in Washington.

                I'm also somewhat in the same situation. I have received two emails (one in MAR and one in JUL), stating that I need to stay in shape (this was a mass email sent to other applicants) due to the fact that the DEA has already spent a lot of money and time on myself and others. I reached out to OPM, and they said they haven't received my application, however when I called the security specialist in DC, they stated that they are waiting for financial information, and that there is nothing I need to do on my end. I submitted my equip I believe between APR and JUL of last year, and took the polygraph in AUG of 2018.

            • I'm part of the 2014 applicants, I finally got word that I passed everything (SMH), I was told I'm waiting on the suitability panel. The magical question is when will they review my application!! Frustrating is an understatement. I guess I better start working out again, it might be another 2 years lol.

                Have you tried calling HQ?

            • It is my understanding that when they call you to schedule final PT, that your academy will start within 90 days. Does anyone know if that's accurate?

              Comment


              • Just wondering if anyone is in the same situation as I am. I took my poly back in Nov 2018. Still haven’t heard anything. Called HQ and was told they sent me a letter in Feb (doesn’t sound good). But I still haven’t received said letter. Verified address is correct on file. HQ hasn’t told me I’ve been closed out. Any idea what’s going on at this point?

                  Had same thing happen, they probably "didn't select you" or you didn't pass the poly. In my case I did pass the poly as I got an E-quip like 2 weeks later, filled it out and never heard anything back for a year, until I called and was told I was "not selected". I never got a letter either, have asked for said letter at least 3 times to see what it says, nothing. DEA is super unorganized. Either e-mail the local recruiter to start again. Or do a FOIA, I was going to do the FOIA, but just decided to try again. Good luck.

                • Ohh ok. That’s interesting that you said you got the rail 2 weeks later. I actually submitted my eqip before I went to the poly. I guess I’ll never know for sure. My local recruiter has been terrible getting back to me for anything for some reason. Although she responds quickly to a few others that I know that communicate with her. Maybe she knows something that won’t tell me for sure.
