CBP officers and canine teams conducted demonstrations in the school auditorium, taking questions and answers and explaining the wide range of career options open to students. Student understanding was enhanced through interactive exercises, including mock contraband searches during simulated inspections.

Students were actively engaged throughout the visit. CBP officers were proud to share information, personal experiences, and discuss career options in America’s largest law enforcement agency.

“The level of professionalism within our CBP family is remarkable,” said Port Director Steven Bronson. “The visit to Peru Central School reflected the high dedication and compassion of our employees. Outreach opportunities provide a great opportunity for CBP employees to give back to the community.”
