Professional Responsibility

Assistant Commissioner Matthew Klein

The Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) is responsible for ensuring compliance with all CBP-wide programs and policies relating to corruption, misconduct, or mismanagement, and for executing CBP’s internal security and integrity awareness programs. Through its national headquarters in Washington, DC, and strategically located regional field offices, OPR screens potential CBP employees for suitability; conducts polygraph examinations for law enforcement positions; educates employees concerning ethical standards and integrity responsibilities; investigates allegations of employee corruption and serious misconduct, and evaluates security threats to CBP employees, facilities, and sensitive information. The OPR mission is clear and critically important - to promote the integrity and security of the CBP workforce.
