  • Another Border Patrol Question

    Howdy, folks. I've recently started looking at the US Border Patrol as a potential employer. I've been in the Marines for over 3 years and have about 1 and a half years left.

    Will my time in the Marines help me get hired even if I don't have any military LE experience?

    What are my odds of getting stationed outside of CA? I'm way too pro-2A to stay here after my enlistment so WA, MT, ND, AZ, TX, and AK are high on my list and CA is on the very very bottom of my list.

    How much does college (or lack thereof) have to do with the selection process?

    To those of you who are CBP, what did you do before you were hired by CBP and what do you like and dislike about your job?

      I was Customs Investigations (now I.C.E.), but worked quite a bit with BP. Generally good folks, we all had common goals. You must enjoy working nights, out of doors.
      Most of them are Pro-2nd Amendment, most are shooters of some sort, and the odds are good of getting assigned to either Texas, AZ., or NM.
      Go for it.
      And yes, your Mil. time does get you some small preference in hiring.


      And thank you for your service to our country.

        OP Here. I'll ask another question in the same thread.

        I heard that the BP is phasing out the Beretta's in favor of the P2000 (I think that's it). If you have a sidearm that you regularly carry and like it, can you carry that instead? When do you have the opportunity to carry long guns (and what long guns do you carry)?

          We carry the P2000. No, you can't carry whatever you want. However, you can take out a long gun anytime.
