I posted this in the Clearance Forum, but didn't get any responses. Maybe someone here has some insight?

Does anyone know how long Public Trust clearances are actually taking for non-attorney positions at DOJ (Criminal Division)? I'm not 100% sure of the specific tier--I currently have tier 2 from HHS/OPM but was told 1. there was no reciprocity between the two agencies and 2. I would need a higher tier (maybe 4? They didn't specify so that's my guess). Security personnel told me it's 6-8 weeks for non-attorney packages, 8-10 weeks for attorney packages. About 3 weeks after fingerprints and submitting the SF85P & other documents I was contacted for additional information and provided it right away. I checked in again about 3 weeks after that and was told they didn't need anything else. It's now been 10 weeks total. If it's taking longer, that's fine, but I was told 6-8 and so of course am now wondering and worrying.

Apart from dual citizenship with Canada thanks to my mother (I've never had a passport, never lived there or went to school there or have even traveled there in 9+ years), my background is super boring (one address, one spouse still married, never been fired or laid off, no criminal anything, no debt beyond mortgage, little international travel and only to Mexico & the Caribbean for vacation, etc).

I have the TO and I've done the drug test and have been given access to the onboarding system. HR is responsive when I reach out, but can only tell me that my security package is still in process.

Anyone have a recent experience with DOJ non-attorney positions that could provide additional insight into actual package processing times?

Many thanks.
