Was leaning towards NOLA until I started looking at real estate prices and commute times. We have 4 - 100# dogs so a yard is necessary, and a big one. In our price range, I'd be looking at well over an hour commute. I've done that before - andxwill never do it again.

Alex Bay is the likely choice. I was also talking to someone at FLETC who is from and picked alex bay. Shes been there since being sent home from FLETC for COVID19. New hires typically work 8-4 m-f, no weekends. OT will obviously be a challenge, but with the new port being constructed, they're apparently hiring 75 new officers, per what she said, essentially doubling the port size.

Sounds like a decent choice. Just be aware that the new hire schedule is most likely during field training and subject to change after.

She said she was told it was for the first year? Idk. I tend to work as much as possible. A couple months ago I volunteered to work a 17 hr day with TSA.

Nice! Yeah just wanted to give you a warning as at different ports it’s just for FTO. Best not to make a decision based on that alone. But everything else is well thought out. New Orleans is a fun city but like you’re finding out, good luck living inexpensively!

best of luck.

If you have any specific questions about NOLA  let me know. It’s my hometown and I was a cop there for 13 years before coming on board with ice.

NOLA or Andrade. I'm in SD now and have been trying to get to Andrade for a year. There's a big wait list to transfer there for a reason. (Personally, landborder is much more enjoyable than an airport, I can't speak for seaports).
