    CBP Opens Announcement to Hire Additional 2,000 Officers

    Release Date:
    May 1, 2014

    WASHINGTON — U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency responsible for securing U.S. borders from all threats, is now accepting applications nationwide to fill 2,000 additional officer positions at air, land and sea ports across the country. As a result of funding provided in the fiscal year 2014 budget, 44 ports in 18 states will receive additional staffing to enhance security, help reduce wait times and facilitate growing volumes of legitimate goods and travelers that are critical to the health of our Nation’s economy.

    As a key asset component of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s frontline defense, a CBP officer’s primary responsibility is to detect and prevent terrorists, their weapons and other threats from entering the U.S. while facilitating legitimate trade and travel. This requires enforcing more than 400 laws related to trade, contraband, agricultural pests and diseases, and admissibility of individuals.


    These newly hired CBP officers are expected to deploy to 44 ports in 18 states to include New York; Los Angeles; Detroit; Buffalo, New York; Houston; Dallas; Chicago; Las Vegas; Laredo, Texas; Nogales, Arizona; and New Orleans.


    CBP officers are federal law enforcement officers and are required to wear uniforms and carry firearms in the performance of their duties. They carry out a full range of inspection, passenger and cargo analysis, examination and law enforcement activities related to the arrival and departure of travelers, merchandise and conveyances such as cars, trucks, aircraft and ships at U.S. ports of entry.


    An applicant for the CBP officer position must be a U.S. citizen and a resident of the U.S for the past three years; must be referred for selection prior to their 37th birthday (or a preference eligible veteran, or have prior civilian federal law enforcement experience); and have a valid driver’s license. In addition, applicants must pass an entrance examination, medical examination, physical fitness assessments, video-based test and/or structured interview, drug test, background investigation and polygraph examination.


    For selected candidates, CBP offers paid training to fully prepare them for an exciting career in federal law enforcement, the opportunity to serve our country, and a competitive salary and benefits package.


    CBP offers a unique opportunity for veterans to continue serving their country in an environment that appreciates the hard-earned knowledge, skills and abilities veterans gain through serving on the front lines. Nearly 30 percent of CBP employees are military veterans.


    CBP is an equal opportunity employer and encourages women and minorities to apply so that the agency can create a workforce that reflects the diversity of America.

    To apply for the CBP officer position, applicants must have an active USA Jobs account and complete an online application at www.usajobs.gov.


    U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

    It's difficult to oppose job creation, but this move really is just window dressing. 'Bama & Co. have no intention of enforcing our existing immigration laws, and our southern border is too long to be effectively sealed.

    The only way to stop illegals from sneaking in to our country and undercutting Americans for jobs is to enact Universal E-Verify. That will eliminate the jobs lure, which is responsible for most illegal entry and overstays.

    Am additional advantage of Universal E-Verify is that it can be implemented for billons of dollars less that we'll spend on a fence which won't stop illegal entry.
