U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is the nation’s largest federal law enforcement agency charged with securing the nation’s borders and facilitating international travel and trade. Our top priority is to keep terrorists and their weapons from entering the United States.
At the nation’s more than 300 ports of entry, Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers have a complex mission with broad law enforcement authorities tied to inspecting all foreign visitors, returning U.S. citizens and imported cargo that enters the United States. Along the nation’s borders, the United States Border Patrol (USBP) and Air and Marine Operations (AMO) are the uniformed law enforcement components of CBP responsible for securing U.S. borders between ports of entry.
