      We still use the sit and reach; however, your initial FIT should consist of push ups, sit ups, and one and a half mile run. I don't believe they will fully implement the new test until well into 2018.

      I just completed FIT a week ago, and I did sit and reach. FWIW.

        The sit and reach and the old test is still in use for the FIT test to get a slot at the academy. The new standards they are implementing are for when you are at the academy; fence climb, downed officer drag, things like that. But from what they told us the FIT to be hired remains the same.

          Anyone know which locations candidates have been selected for? I feel my options are limited with me just nearly finished building a new house in upstate NY. Not really looking to move for the next couple of years. Fingers crossed there are openings in my area.

            Just received my referral email today. My rating is an 88. How important is the rating?

              - Former Local LEO
              - Current Federal LEO
              - Bachelor’s degree.

              Got this email indicating ineligibility, with the following reason:

              ”IEX According to the SF-50 submitted, positions that you held were in the excepted service. Since positions held were not in the competitive service, you are not eligible for consideration under merit promotion.”

                  so Deputy Marshals don't get LEAP for the first 2 years and are not given G-Rides and are stuck doing court and prisoner transport pretty much their entire careers unless they are in a small office somewhere away from a major metropolis. so exciting....

                    If you don't sign the waiver, you should get "safe pay" if you're already coming from a current federal position. You might be a GL 7 but could rank out at a Step 9 to equally match your current pay scale.

                    but still a 7 and then still need to wait the same amount of time to get the 9 and then the 11. doesnt matter you still have to wait a minimum of 2 years of making peanuts before you rate LEAP

                    They will give you pay retention up to a GL-07, step 10. They will not give anyone a 00 and completely match their pay anymore.

                    However, it is USMS policy to give you your highest rate of previous pay at each step.

                  has anyone got a response from USMS after requesting interview dates???

                    I have missed calls from “unknown ID” I think I may have missed their call. I sure hope they call me again. Anyone missed their call and had them call back?

                    tonyt848. I missed their initial call but they left a voicemail with callback number. I called and left them a vm. They called right back. If it's them they should call right back depending on how quick the interview slots filled up.

                    Thank you. They didn’t leave a VM so I’m hoping it wasn’t them and I’ll receive a call soon. Thanks!

                  Are you in the excepted service? USSS or USCP or something like that? If so, then that is the correct rating unfortunately. That is why I pulled out of the Capitol Police process when I was trying to join the federal government. Excepted service is a major hindrance to career mobility.

                  Hopefully a future announcement is public, all US citizens, so you can start the process.

                    Since one of the entry test's major components is personal character, values, and things that indicate the type of person you are, I can see why you failed based solely on this comment.

                        Did y'all ever receive a call for an interview? The couple of people who posted ratings and had not received a call were a 92 and below. I also am a 92 and have not received a call. I figured there was a cutoff even for the referred.

                      Funny you said that. The test is ambiguous at best. Taken MANY of them over the years, took one for my Ohio Hwy patrol career, took one for my high end commercial security job before that, took one to get the federal LEO career I have now....never had an issue. Nothing wrong with my comment at all. My comment was meant to show that I am not all broken up over a test that's not a test. I am in no way worried about my values, solid work ethic, selflessness, and many other valuable traits that I have gained in my 45 years( including 19 years of service to this country).
                      Sorry you didn't like it.
