Statement from Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske on the Interim Report by the CBP Integrity Advisory Panel

Release Date: 
July 1, 2015

I would like to thank the Integrity Advisory Panel – co-chaired by Karen Tandy and Bill Bratton – for their hard work and commitment to helping make a more transparent and accountable CBP.  With the full support of Secretary Johnson, we formed this panel last year as part of the Homeland Security Advisory Council with the intention of having these respected leaders in the law enforcement community provide guidance and best practices based on their experiences leading the most prominent law enforcement agencies in the world.  We look forward to reviewing the details of the Panel’s first set of recommendations. I am heartened that many of the CBP’s interactions with the panel members centered around furthering integrity, Use of Force policy, and transparency efforts  already implemented or underway.  I am committed to continuing the progress made in the last year and to continue our work to earn the trust and respect of the American public and of the communities we work within.
