  • I seen BPA when I searched "Anti terrorism office" on Indeed.com in New York, Ny. As I said, it is listed in Ny. Do you have to relocate to work as a BPA? I am interested if i could say in NY; I see it's also U.S. Customs & Border Protection, any information would be appreciated.

      I will tell you right now that NO. You will almost 99.9999% be assigned to the SW border. Only way you may get up to the Northern border is if a VRP opens up and you by miracle get selected or by some other act of GOD. All the work is down here. But first you have to get hired, which in itself is a challenge.

        Apply for the CBP Officer position. They need people up in NYC area.
        Natural selection leaves the survivors stronger and better! Humans have escaped this winnowing for far too long!

            With the current traffic, you may be sent to the Rio Grand Valley Sector

            • I'm a current DHS employee. Took the written test in July, got 97 without Vet Pref. Today, I got an email saying that I will be contacted for an interview in 4-6 weeks. I hope everything goes smooth and fast!

                So at least there's movement from the 2013 announcement. When did you receive your TSL? Also is it confirmed yet about BP looking at quals and not just test scores?

                • I got the same email about the interview in 4-6 weeks. I scored a 96 on the test. I don't know if they are using qualifications yet or not because I don't have any checks on the CASS yet. Just waiting for the interview but I feel that they are going off of test scores and not quails.

                    • Anyone else get the email today inviting to come take the written test? it specifically said they are looking to hire within 9 months. The gist of the email was "we're looking to hire, so make sure you're ready to go in 9 months. Get your stuff in order."

                        I passed the exam in april and now just waiting on the TSL. So hopefully this news is accurate.

                        • Hi guys! I'm sad to inform That I can't take off my mind about going blue. I love what we do but the location is hard on me and the family.

                          Just wondering about the poly, would that affect me in any way if I don't pass it?
                          No, I don't have anything to hide.
                          But It seem that even clean candidates have fail it.
                          Thanks.

                            hi cloudbuster,

                            basically if you fail the poly for Border Patrol you will lose your offer for CBPO and Border Patrol, i have heard they give you an option to withdraw your application if you do fail the poly and that you cannot apply for DHS positions until 3 years or something( I'm sure the more experienced guys will clear me up but thats pretty much the gist ).

                            you might as well think positive and hope you get a retest
