  • There are some 4x4 vans here. I have also seen a few vehicles with cut lights mounted on the rear drivers side bumper. The magnetic style looks good; I may build one.

    • Any word on hiring for new BP agents. I got a 100 on the test last October but haven't heard a peep from BP.

        You're in line with 10,000-20,000 other applicants that applied during the past 3 years and BP already has more applicants in TSU than they plan to hire this FY.

        Get comfortable...

            Ask your FTO. Or see what agents around you are using.

            • Thanks sap. I got the magnetic idea from my FTO. I was just looking for additional input.

              Currently the Qbeam is working, but post-FTU will find a magnetic in my bag as well.

              • Does the Border Patrol offer tuition reimbursement? If so, what are the limits and eligibility requirements?

                  Is there a program? Yes

                  Is there $$$ funding the program? Doubtful.

                  • 2011 Budget Curbs Border Security


                    The latest news is that Border Patrol will lose 180 agents via attrition with Obama's 2011 budget proposal.


                    Can anyone put into perspective how - if at all - those of us in TSU may be affected if this goes through?


                    Is this a jab on the shoulder or a kick to the face?

                      It's a pretty vague report. After glancing over the actual budget request report (a 20mb pdf file *ugh*) it looks like they're looking to reduce premium pay for management or supervisors that are looking work extra, and the way they want to do that is to just not fill 181 of the slots that will open up due to attrition. That means that there could be more than 181 agents lost due to attrition and those will be filled.

                      Everyone that is in the pipeline (no matter where you are in it) needs to know this: Right now station and sector management is putting the word out - Budgets are disappearing, so plan accordingly. Take that for what you will.

                        There was an email in the fall asking for applicants for the program. IMS, there was $2,000 for about 2,000 people. That may have been DHS-wide.

                        • I was hearing some chatter over at honorfirst about guys renewing their med/phys and was wondering if I am going to have to renew mine anytime soon based on my timeline below. Any advice would be helpful.

                              Looking at your timeline, it looks like you've flown through. Any advice for me. I am also an OEF vet. Took the test in Philly in August, got a score of 100 yet I have not heard a peep from anyone.

                              What should I do?

                                By the way, I also took the IEA test and got the same similarly unspectacular score. Weird since I aced the BP test, which I considered to be the most difficult of all the FLEO tests I've taken, and I took FBI, SS, SS-UD, BP and ICE IEA.

                                Maybe something in the water in Afghanistan made us dumb
