In the last several years OAM has participated in several television and film productions. OAM's role has been to showcase its capabilities in detecting, intercepting and interdicting drugs and human smugglers trying to enter the United States with illicit cargo. OAM has utilized different types of aircraft and vessels, as well as the facilities of the Air and Marine Operations Center, in order to educate the American public about OAM's mission and its diverse types of operations.
OAM has been featured in films such as "The Fast and the Furious" and "Contraband" and in television series such as "CSI: Miami" (CBS), "Border Security USA" (ABC), "Border Wars" (National Geographic Channel) and "America's Most Wanted" (FOX).
CBP receives many proposals from production companies, networks and other outlets that produce programming for broadcast. We cannot participate with every request and we do take requests in the order received. For further Information please contact the DHS Office of Public Affairs Multi-Media Division at (818) 840-6319.
OAM does not publish a magazine, but you may read about various aspects of OAM's operations in the official U.S. Customs and Border Protection magazine, Frontline.
