    Castrated Border Patrol.

    Your choice depends on what you want to do. I wouldn't get hug up on the money. The same salary that qualifies you for food stamps in Southern California allows you to live like a king in South Texas.

    A State agency confines you to that State, in CBP you can be stationed almost anywhere in the world.

    CBP - Customs and Border Protection (Merger between the uniformed Customs Service and the uniformed INS service which includes the Border Patrol.)

    - CBP OFFICER (Old Customs Inspectors merged with Old Immigration Inspectors)- In a very loose job description work at airports, seaports and land ports of entry inspecting people and cargo coming in.

    - (CBP) Border Patrol Agent - Work in between ports of entry to detect and interdict anything coming into the country.

    Two VERY different jobs suited for two VERY different kinds of people. Just thought I'd clarify that one.

    aha! I learned something.. CBP..


    CDCR dude!!!!

    a lot of "inside" jobs - SERT, Gangs, Towers,
    "outside ones too - Parole Agent, Criminal Investigator, Investigations
    Office of Civil Rights, etc....

    this state job trumps CBP pay (federal).
    CBP also - you have to learn spanish while in their academy.. must learn or fail the program (great way / reason to learn OR more pressure).

    Willow, sometimes I think sgttom is more correct...

    Here's a thought, why aren't the Canadian/Northern Border illegals yammering for citizenship???? Why don't Northern Border BPA's going to prison for "unjustified use of dealy force" ? Think about that!

    In response to the thread proper:

    As with most Local v. Federal, Local = better benefits(family friendly premiums), lower pay(usually), Fed= more pay less benefits (cost more in premiums/not so good retirement). Things are gonna change when we get 6c/12d or whatever the controllers give us.

    If you are applying to be a cbp agent which is not the same as a border patrol agent, I would reccomend going for the cdcr job due to the fact that the cdcr has a much better retirement package. If you are applying for the border patrol agent, its a different situation since they have the same type of retirement package.

    Depends on what you're looking for in the future... (and I'm not sure what CBP is at the moment)..... correctional officer, move up to intelligence officer or even better, parole officer. Great money, great bene's, POWERFUL union, transfer abilities up and down the state.... Do you have an AA or even better, a BA or MBA? Do a couple of years and get into the Office of Civil Rights or their (relatively) newly established IA Department.. talk about training and Overtime..

    Where you looking to start at? CMF? Folsom? CSP? The "Q"?

    started a topic CDCR officer or CBP officer?

    CDCR officer or CBP officer?

    I have completed my pre-employment proccess with CDCR and be given a academy start date. However, I am almost in the same situation with CBP...Don't know where to go. Personally I like what CDCR has to offer and it seems that there are better opportunities. I am also in the running for FAM, but that might take a few more months to complete. Any suggestions?
