  • Hello everyone. Just wondering how kids and a wife handle the smaller towns were some agents are stationed. How far away can you live from the border? Is there allot of crime in the cities near the border? The reason I ask is I want to apply, but I am already a cop and I want to find out as much as I can about the job. Any advise would be appreciated!

    • Hello everyone I'm new to the forum , I have been in the process for quite some time.. In the cass i have checks on everything exept: pre-employment forms, and backround investigation. Yesterday I got an email stating all my pre-employment forms have checked out just needed a copy of my current drivers license. I sent a copy then got an email saying "Thank you, You should hear from the Training and Scheduling unit in the next couple of weeks. Congratulations and good luck!"

          I accepted BPA over CBPO, it was a tough last minute decision. Federal Law Enforcement Retirement Coverage (12(d)) was the deal breaker. Anybody have any thoughts on that?

            Morally, it's more simple when you are a normal LEO. Everyone knows murder, rape, robbery, etc. are inherently wrong (malum in se). Illegal immigration, on the other hand, is only wrong by our legal definition (malum prohibitum).
            Damn, you're smart! I wonder why Congress didn't consult you before they passed these horrible laws!
            If you're a sympathizer, why don't you go see if ACLU or La Raza is hiring?

                          Thanks Raymart, I'm going to tell you this, there's no better feeling then to know you have been finally offered a job after such a long and grueling process/wait. You're almost there, you'll see what I mean when you get that Call. From the looks of things, the process has been moving rather fast lately. BTW, have you called IA to check your status??

                          • I can't wait to feel the same feeling as well Allistar...

                            I spoke with IA on Wednesday, and they told me that they are waiting for one more piece of paper before they assign it to someone... Oh well, I take it as more time to prepare!

I've worked that gig for 3 years and there is a lot of paperwork that comes along with every "cool" thing you do. BPA prob doesn't respond to burglary alarms, domestics, thefts, accidents, robberies, shootings, homicides etc every day. Not trying to be a dick but don't judge your job off of "COPS" or "Border Patrol". Anyone that made a switch from street to BPA PM me got some questions.

                              Ya I hear you. That goes with any LE job, the paperwork. It just happens & ya deal with it. And no the BPA does not respond to "robberies, alarms domestics etc". Thats not their job, its the local PD's.. Every agency has a different LE task.
                              I realize it will not always be "crazy & fun" but thats life. Guess its not for everybody, but we'll all eventually find something we love to do, hope you do too.
