CBP is currently hiring Border Patrol Agents as part of an initiative to fill a critical need for female agents on the Southwest Border. 
Restricted to Female Applicants Only.  Apply today.

Due to this critical need, which includes the screening of female detainees who enter the United States, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has granted CBP an exception to Title 5 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 332, Section 332.407, which authorizes the targeted recruitment of female agents along the Southwest Border of the United States. We anticipate future hiring opportunities for male and female agents.

CBP is not soliciting for reemployed annuitant applications at this time. Please continue to revisit our website for updated information.
