What are the qualifications to becoming a CBP Officer?…
As a CBP Officer, you will be on duty at one of our nation's international airports, seaports or land border crossings. These ports of entry are the front line of defense against terrorist intrusion, as well as criminal activities, such as drug smuggling, money laundering, undocumented entry of individuals, weapons trafficking, smuggling of prohibited goods and a host of Customs violations.
As a U.S. federal law enforcement officer, you will wear a uniform, carry firearms, and work overtime as required. Some CBP Officers are trained as dog handlers.
