2012-2016 U.S. Border Patrol Strategic Plan

The 2012-2016 Border Patrol Strategic Plan marks an important point in the growth and development of the U.S. Border Patrol. The Strategic Plan establishes an approach for the Border Patrol that is tailored to meet the challenges of securing a 21st century border against a variety of different threats and adversaries. The 2012-2016 Strategic Plan builds on the foundation of the 2004 National Border Patrol Strategy, which guided the acquisition and deployment of significant additional resources – personnel, technology, and infrastructure – to support execution of the Border Patrol’s mission.
