Havre, Mont. — On April 15, 2015, Havre Border Patrol Station agents visited the Lutheran Preschool in Havre and read to the students in support of “I Love to Read Month.”
Agents, in an effort to reach out to the younger generation, attend the classrooms so they become familiar with their law enforcement community. After the kids’ questions were answered about law enforcement, the agents read two books to them. The books are donated to the classroom by agents’ families from the Havre Station for the children to read on their own.
"It’s a great way to get the kids excited about reading and about law enforcement officers,” said Border Patrol Agent Melissa Hart from the Havre Sector Public Affairs Office. “We want the kids to see law enforcement officers and gain the confidence to talk to officers at any time when they are out in public.”
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.
