Our mission is one of national security – to secure America’s borders in order to prevent the entry of terrorists and terrorist weapons into the United States. Similarly, we execute our traditional mission of detecting and preventing the illegal entry of aliens and contraband into the United States. Our sworn responsibility is to enforce all Federal laws relating to trans-national threats in our nation’s border areas.
To accomplish our mission, we apply Information, Integration and Rapid Response while utilizing highly-trained agents and a variety of specialized equipment, technology, and intelligence-based information to optimize control of the border. Spokane Sector will continue making every effort to balance enforcement tactics while displaying respect and consideration for our communities and stakeholders as well as the environmentally sensitive areas we patrol.
Our border enforcement operations are aligned with the National Border Patrol Strategy, as we utilize a risk-based approach to integrate field level intelligence and establish an enforcement environment that is threat based, actionable, and intelligence driven.
We carry out our mission with professionalism and in partnership with our communities, our community leaders, and our federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agency partners in our unified efforts to Protect America.
