    Still, I'm sure attrition is higher for BP. At least with a local PD you likely had to visit the city you'll be working in during the interview. This is a wild guess, but I imagine that at least 75% of BP hires have never been to the area they will work before they were hired.

    Then factor in the demanding nature of the job, and the attrition isn't so suprising. I think it's just going to be something the BP will always have to work on.
    Would anyone happen to know the attrition rate of BP before the hiring directive kicked in? I guess some of the data might be all messed up since CBP forming, I'm just curious though.

      • Until CBP actually puts in a good faith effort into retaining it's people...rather than essentially pushing them towards the door, they'll always have significant retention problems, IMHO.

          • Just finished my fitness/med. Definitely passed the fitness and she said they mail the med. forms in for review, but everything looked fine!!!!! Everything on CASS still says pending for me. I guess it's really slow. Am I going to need to do anything for the BI, other than the paperwork I filled out?

            • I passed according to the people at the Occupational Health Center. I guess it's all about peeing in the cup and passing the BI at this point.

                CASS is the Central Applicant Self-Service System. It basically lets you know where you are at in the hiring process.

                  • I checked out CASS, everything is still pending. It even says "We have not received the background investigation documentation which is required to begin your investigation." I checked the e-qip site everything looked cool, and I know I sent in a billion copies of everything that they needed in 2-3 weeks ago. Must just be a slow process in updating the site

                      • welp, I almost had a heart attack, cause I got a call from my adjudicator asking me questions about a couple parking tickets I had. It freaked me out because they were not moving violations and were at most 25 bucks a pop, meaning that the BI was not interested in them. I get about halfway through my explanation and he says "wait... they weren't moving violations? Nevermind. Well I'm all done here, don't expect anymore calls from me cause you're good to go."

                          • When I check CASS or check the automated phone line, it says everything is pending still. Does anyone else have this status? I'm wondering if it's because they are so busy right now.

                                Looks normal. I wouldn't expect anything to have cleared on CASS given that you only turned in pre-employment forms last week.

                                This is a normally slow process (12 to 18 months?) that has happened to have sped up for some in the last year.
