      Honest truth, I know you are right, but it's not like there is anywhere for us to go. I will say this, if you came from a policing background to the patrol, you will be seriously disappointed, especially if you came recently because the traffic is so slow. I literally miss my days as a Deputy Sheriff. Even on the slowest days, I could be proactive and find something to do. Here, if it is slow, there is nothing you can do to be proactive. You can only cut so many roads, check so many lay up spots, pull over so many code 4 cars before you start to get burned out.
      Natural selection leaves the survivors stronger and better! Humans have escaped this winnowing for far too long!

      • Almost retired? You calling me old?!?! Haha! The reason for the change was because I hadn't had a pay increase in five years making less than $40K. In the patrol my salary doubled. The problem is that the patrol is making some serious steps to eliminate the opportuniity to make that kind of money. It's still good money if they cut us to our base salary. But, there are local pd's making similair money as our base salary with a much higher job satisfaction. I still think that overall the patrol is going to have better pay and benefits. I think we will know what the direction the patrol is going to take in the next 12 months.

                • If I have completed a Medical 8/11 for CBPO will I have to do so again when applying to a new announcement for BP if its less than a year?
                  Or will it transfer over?
                  Thanks

                      You need to call her back and verify. One generally Enters On Duty at the sector headquarters of their assigned station, then travels to El Paso for some CBP stuff, then goes to Artesia. It could be different in your case, but I doubt it, as the process is fairly rigid.

                      Weslaco is in the Rio Grande Valley Sector, the headquarters of which is in McAllen.

                      Good luck in your endeavors.

                        • striketm, I took the BPA exam January 2011 and got a score of 73. I honestly did not think twice about it after getting such a low score. Tuesday I recieved an email saying this:

                          ""Dear Border Patrol Agent Applicant:

                          Our records indicate that you have an active record on the Border Patrol Agent (BPA) applicant inventory for the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

                          Why are we sending you this letter?
                          This letter is let you know that the Minneapolis Hiring Center continues to make tentative selections for the Southwest Border from this inventory. Please continue to monitor your email weekly as tentative selection offers are made via email.

                          What do I need to do?

                          You may email the Minneapolis Hiring Center with your full name, last four digits of your social security number and a brief statement asking to be removed from the inventory. .

                          Thank you for your continued interest in a position with U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

                          U.S. Customs & Border Protection
                          """

                          I contacted them and via email to give them a new phone number and got this reply:

                          ""The BPA announcement is currently closed. We are currently selecting applicants in score order from 110-70. Once we reach your score you will be contacted via email. For more information on the position of BPA . If you have received a tentative selection letter and applicant ID please contact the BPA Staffing unit at: 952-857-2910 or [email protected] We will respond to your email as quickly as we can. ""

                          So I guess after almost 2 years they are reaching the mid 70s . Have you heard anything?

                              I took the test September 2010 and have still not had my drug test. Been in limbo since I met my investigator August 2011 and I'm a current federal employee. I love this process.
