"A central goal is to identify the best way CBP can respond at each stage in the movement of a potentially dangerous shipment or person," said CBP Commissioner Alan Bersin. "Accomplishing that goal will require closer partnerships with the private sector, border communities, foreign governments, state, local, and tribal law enforcement, and other federal agencies - all of which have access to crucial information that CBP needs to do its job."

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.
