        I hate to break it to you Mr. DakingOfqueens, but you're not doing yourself any favors by arguing and defending your history of substance abuse, especially to a community of people who are here because they want to uphold the law. Most of the questions you have asked thus far seem to stem from you watching "Border Wars" on National Geographic. I know because I watched some episodes too. What's important is to understand that Border Wars is a TV show, and its primary purpose is to entertain. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that MUCH of the responsibilities, duties, and hazards that Border Patrol Agents and CBP Officers are exposed to are omitted for the sake of allowing them to do their jobs properly. I'm a CBP hopeful myself, and I realize that as much research as I have done and as many CBPO's that I've consulted I still have no idea what I'm getting myself into. I'm okay with that. Echoing what another person said a few posts ago I do think that you should re-evaluate your chosen career path, if I were on the job and something went down I know that I'd want whoever is backing me up to have a good head on their shoulders, and someone who isn't prone to making bad decisions. I apologize if I'm offending you, but that's how I feel. Good luck.

                Same here. My pre-employment forms have FINALLY been received after sending them back 3.5 months ago! But nothing on BI.

                  The people at the Administrative office said my file was forwarded to the Investigators. I got mail from credit reporting agencies stating that the BP contacted them for my public records on the 11/12/2010. I have not heard anything since then. Is BI affected by the federal budget not being signed yet? Are FBI, ATF, and other federal agent applicants waiting like us?

                  • I believe it is affected by funding

                    • Here's my bet on the next stimulating question from dakingofqueens:

                      "When I do become a BPA and I confiscate narcotics, how much of it can smoke/snort/sell?"

                        Not affected really... I just went through my 2nd BI late december for CBPO. Whenever they are ready to process your file, they'll assign a BI to do your "interview", and depending on how much you've moved around the country they'll have to assign different Investigators to gather that information...

                          • I don't really follow this thread, but I happened upon it while searching for something else. I have my dates if any of you are interested.

                            Written Test & Results: March 2009

                            TSU: September 2009

                            At the end of 2010 I had to sign a form saying nothing had changed medically since my PFT1. I also had to have another drug screen.

                            EOD: February 9th 2011

                            I did not have to take a polygraph test. Of the three of us at the PFT2, only one did. I was expecting it since I understood the majority of applicants now had to pass it.

                            There are basically two kinds of people in this world. Those that believe in the moon landing and those that don't.
