CHURUBUSCO, N.Y. - U.S. Customs & Border Protection officers conducted an outreach event for the Northern Adirondack Central School District on June 14, 2017. A total of 57 fifth grade students, along with staff and faculty members, were welcomed to the Churubusco Port of Entry and presented with a CBP overview.
The students learned about CBP’s overall mission and experienced live demonstrations throughout the day, highlighted by some of the tools and technology deployed to keep America’s borders safe.
“Students were excited to learn about CBP from our uniformed officers,” said Port Director Virgil Farnsworth. “The Trout River port of entry looks forward to this annual event. CBP is committed to supporting a positive partnership between law enforcement and America’s youth. This event was a great opportunity to display work performed by CBP and other federal agencies regarding border security.”
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
