  • Hello,
    I have been doing some outdoor running to prepare for the physical test. My test will be in mid Dec, will they have us run the 1.5miles indoor or outdoor? Is it safe to assume if there's no precipitation we will run outside? Also, does anyone know the PRT order?
    Thanks in advance!

      You'll run outside at the FLETC facility in Cheltenham MD. If the weather is too bad they'll cancel the assessment for the weekend.

  • Hello everyone,
    it's me again, and I have a few more questions about the USCP process. I was wondering about the actual length of the polygraph. The emails/website tell me that the polygraph takes around 4-6hours (not sure of the actual time they said), I am wondering if it will actually take that long for each individual. I dont know, I'm thinking maybe the estimated time is for all parts of the gauntlet phase combined or I could be wrong.

            They have criminal investigators, but they are not 1811's.

            No. Some of the “Special Agents” for CID, Threats, and Intel go to CITP. But they are not classified as 1811s, they are on the same grade and pay as a normal officer.

            Etoolqual are they called special agents or nah? Why quotes? I don’t think postal inspectors dss or some others are technically 1811’s either

            Sports21 They are titled as Special Agents but they are not 1811 nor do they get paid in that regard. The DPD (Dignitary Protection Division) are called Special Agents but that’s just their title, those officers do not go to CITP not do they carry any 1811 status.

        • Do they disqualify for bad credit? Working on fixing but was out of work for about 5 months at the tail end of 18. Also, had a suspension for not paying a parking ticket. What do you guys think?

            I think they do disqualify for poor credit, my credit score is really good and was really good when I applied back in 2017. But around 2008 I racked a lot of debt that I wasn’t paying on Thats the only thing I think held me back I passed everything written, oral, physical, poly, psych. then Had the background investigation my BI ran my credit 2 times that was the main thing she focused on . it shows irresponsibility and poor judgement I guess I’m sure I didn’t get chosen because of that

        • Do anyone know if you lateral from MPD to USCP, would they match your pay, or you have to start over?

            No one on this forum is clairvoyant as far as I know. The USCP website says:


            Create a My USAJobs account here to register for USCP job opportunity alerts and to post a resume.


            If you are interested in this particular job that would be the way to track if an announcement is made.

                    Only if they didn’t had the mandatory requirement of needing 3 years of driving experience, I found out I didn’t qualify just because of that.

                • I checked the last 10ish pages and didn't see it... apologies if asked/answered:

                  Any word if the retirement age would be raised? I'd like to work until 60/62 and am not sure if financially 57 would work... what do many USCP officers transition to?

                  If you're local LE do you get to skip any portions of the academy and "lateral" in some capacity or is it full academy start-finish?

                  Thanks.

                    Current mandatory retirement age is 57. Waivers are available depending on dept needs up to age 60.

                • Do they accept other agency poly or clearance
