The event was an excellent opportunity to showcase CBP operations in northwest Pennsylvania and to interact with visitors. “Children are particularly fascinated with heavy equipment and really enjoyed tours of the Air and Marine vessel and Border Patrol vehicle,” said Marine Interdiction Agent Jon Rose.  Agents from Erie Marine Unit and Erie Border Patrol Station entertained a myriad of questions from patrons ranging from border security to employment opportunities over the two-day event. 

CBP’s Office of Air and Marine is now hiring Air and Marine Interdiction Agents. The job application period closes April 17, 2015.
