    Thanks for the post but I just got this from the CPB site:

    6. You must be younger than 40 at the time of selection. The limitation may be waived for applicants who are presently in Federal civilian law enforcement positions covered under the special retirement provisions of P.L. 100-238, or who have been in such positions in the past.

    If you are aware of any other Fed LE jobs that allow someone my are please post

    • Its any other federal law enforcement position with LE retirement. Not all of them get LE retirement.

        House passes $600 million border security billBy the CNN Wire Staff
        August 10, 2010 12:33 p.m. EDT
        STORY HIGHLIGHTS

        Washington (CNN) -- The House of Representatives approved $600 million in emergency funding Tuesday to help secure the U.S.-Mexico border.

        The measure, which passed in a voice vote, will now advance to the Senate for final congressional approval before being signed into law by President Obama.

        Senators passed a similar plan last week.

        Among other things, the bill provides for roughly 1,500 new law enforcement agents, new unmanned aerial vehicles, new forwarding operating bases and $14 million in new communications equipment.

        The measure has attracted strong Democratic and Republican support. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano praised the plan last week, saying it would "add important, permanent resources to continue bolstering security on our Southwest border."

        "These assets are critical to bringing additional capabilities to crack down on transnational criminal organizations and reduce the illicit trafficking of people, drugs, currency and weapons," she said.

        The bill is funded in part by imposing higher fees on personnel companies that bring foreign workers into the United States.
        Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

            I don't doubt that. I'll be willing to bet it's in reference to OBP and not OFO though. CBP has had a recent history of blanket waivers for BP Agents, but not for CBP Officers.

            The VA, DoD, FPS, U.S. Mint, PFPA, BIA, CIA, FBI, GPO, USPS, and many of other agencies have/had uniformed LEO's who fall outside of 6C/12D retirement and the associated age limit.

            • My situation was that I was in TSU as a northern border applicant. I reapplied for the southern border and got a call from MHC asking me if I wanted to be considered for Norther or Southern. I told him Southern and he said that everything I had completed should transfer over. But a day or so ago I received another TO with a new applicant ID number and everything (my old applicant ID still works). Is there anything I can do so that all my prior process is transferred over?

                    have you tested before? is that why you got a TO already?

                      Washington (CNN) -- Two senators -- Democrats Charles Schumer of New York and Ben Cardin of Maryland -- returned from their August recess Thursday to give their chamber's approval for $600 million in emergency funding to help secure the U.S.-Mexico border.

                      The measure, which has already been approved by the House of Representatives, now advances to President Obama's desk to be signed into law.

                      The bill passed by unanimous consent, a parliamentary term for a voice vote that doesn't require the return of the entire Senate chamber. GOP leaders had agreed to the maneuver.

                      Among other things, the bill provides for roughly 1,500 new law enforcement agents, new unmanned aerial vehicles, new forwarding operating bases and $14 million in new communications equipment.

                      now its official. once Obama signs it let the hiring push begin!

                              • I have my written scheduled on the 24th of this month. I have been applying for local PD and Sheriff but hiring is real slow here in CA. I normally wear a suit to written exams for LEO positions. Should I wear one to BP written? I don't know if you score extra points or biz casual will be okay? Thanks in advance....
