A Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer is a full-time, uniformed, federal law enforcement professional. In addition to CBP’s anti-terrorism mission, CBP officers enforce customs, immigration, and agricultural laws and regulations, and officers prevent the illegal trafficking of humans, narcotics and other contraband into the U.S.  CBP officers accomplish that and much more during "A Typical Day."
