    Are there any BP Agents on here that work along the northern border? If so, I have some questions.
    Ask away, I am in Grand Forks Sector.

      What is the process for transferring to the northern border? I know all new BP agents are assigned to the southern border, but how long must an agent stay at the southern border before being eligible for transfer to the northern border?

      I know illegal border crossings along the northern border are not as common as the southern border, but who generally crosses the northern border illegally? Canadians? Other nationalities who have a Canadian visa and decide to come over?

        My guess would be that you're going to spend a minimum of 5 years on the SB. You will have to apply for a VRP (Voluntary Relocation Program) if they are open or do a job swap, which if I remember correctly, was squashed some time ago. I know with this last round of VRP's there is some question it might be cancelled due to budget issues, but don't quote me on that. During a VRP you're going to be competing with people who are senior to you. I am not exaclty sure how the selection process goes so I can't help you there, but you are years from even having to worry about it.

        Actually, illegal crossers are not as uncommon as you might think. Here we have more call outs from local PD and SO for people they think are illegal. In Western ND they get alot of illegals working on the oil rigs and such. Every once in a while you do come across people trying to walk into Canada and sometimes those who have crossed into the US, but it is obviously nowhere near what you will get on the SB.

              • No movement here since October. Nothing in terms of the background or drug test. We may have to start the process over too due to the end of FCIP.

                • No one has to start the process over do to FCIP. They are just changing the name of the program. All those that tested for the Northern Border are being processed first.

                    Is that accurate information from a reliable source?... It makes sense why would they re-do the whole process that's redundet.

                    • NO, its completely unreliable. There will no longer be any NB applicants on 3/1. That's why you don't take hiring advice from applicants who know someone who heard from someone who has a brother who does OBs once every month or two.

                        • The Northern Border applicants are getting the chance to fill the first 500 spots going to stations all over Arizona. They are also not doing the 2nd PTs and polys do to lack of funding.

                          • I highly doubt that information considering applicants who are EODing within the next month or so are still taking PFT2's and applicants are still getting polyd.

                              Yes as a matter of fact, he is! What he means is no one will be directly hired for the Northern Border. They will likely be offered a position in a SB sector.

                                Where are you getting this crap? NB applicants have to apply for the SB if they wish to be considered for the SB.
