Release Date: 
November 5, 2019

WASHINGTON — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Air and Marine Operations (AMO), released AMO Vision and Strategy 2030 today.

AMO Vision and Strategy 2030 establishes a renewed vision, mission, and five strategic goals to move AMO forward. AMO’s vision is to be the nation’s leading aviation and maritime law enforcement organization. The mission of AMO is to safeguard our nation by anticipating and confronting security threats through our aviation and maritime law enforcement expertise, innovative capabilities, and partnerships at the border and beyond. AMO will accomplish its vision and mission by focusing on five strategic goals:

  • Goal 1: People - Build a Mission-Ready Workforce 
  • Goal 2: Safety - Foster a Culture of Safety
  • Goal 3: Operations - Increase the Effectiveness of Operations
  • Goal 4: Integration - Enhance and Integrate Business and Resource Functions Across AMO
  • Goal 5: Communication - Tell Our Story 

“AMO Vision and Strategy 2030 highlights the importance of our people operating together—safely, effectively, and proactively—to meet evolving threats with increased emphasis on domain awareness, partnerships, and intelligence, as well as continuing joint operations and exercises,” said Edward Young, Executive Assistant Commissioner, Air and Marine Operations.  

The challenges AMO faces today are different from those the organization faced when CBP was created more than 15 years ago. AMO Vision and Strategy 2030 was established to account for emerging threats, current and forecasted trends at home and abroad, and to identify a structured plan for the future.
