The Oswego Border Patrol Station is located at 19 East Schuyler Street in the city of Oswego, New York. The Oswego Station was moved to this location and renamed in May of 2005. Prior to May of 2005, the station was known as the Fulton Border Patrol Station and was located on the second floor of the U.S. Post Office in the city of Fulton, New York.
The Fulton Border Patrol Station was opened in 1984 to address migrant labor in the Central New York area. After 1986, Fulton Station's priorities changed to working transportation check and answering calls from other law enforcement agencies.
After September 11, 2001, the decision was made to move the Fulton Station 11 miles north to the city of Oswego, New York. This move put the station's resources directly on the border. In May of 2005, construction of a new Border Patrol Station was completed and Buffalo Sector opened the new Oswego Border Patrol Station.
Area of Responsibility
The Oswego Station is one of six stations in the Buffalo Sector that has been tasked with ensuring the successful implementation of the Border Patrol's Northern Border Strategy.
The Oswego Station area of responsibility covers 36.5 miles of international border with Canada. This international border is comprised solely of water (Lake Ontario). Lake Ontario is a large fresh water lake that separates the United States and Canada. Its shoreline consists of farmland, forested areas, open and wooded land.
The Oswego Station also covers over 5,299 square miles of central New York State, south of the U.S./Canadian border.
The Oswego Station enjoys a very good working relationship with all area law enforcement agencies and these relationships have led to numerous apprehensions of aliens from a variety of countries.
