Random Drug Test
In connection with the agency's mission to enforce our nation's drug laws, the majority of Customs workers have direct responsibility and involvement with the interdiction of illegal narcotics. Customs employees are routinely exposed to illegal substances since their duties involve the investigation, apprehension, and detention of persons suspected of smuggling drugs. To maintain the high professional standards of the CBP workforce, it is imperative that individuals who use illegal drugs are screened out during the pre-employment process prior to entrance on duty.
