    Veterans Bring Value and Excel at CBP

    Throughout CBP, hiring and retaining the highest achievers is a top priority and it begins with the values this special group of men and women offer.
    Veterans are highly skilled, well-disciplined, and accustomed to working in a team environment. They’re dependable and loyal to country—essential traits of officers and agents of to CBP, the nation’s largest law enforcement agency.
    CBP’s commitment to attracting such candidates is second to none as the agency strives to become the employer of choice among veterans and their families.
    U.S. Army First Lieutenant Joseph Brunone is a great example. He applied those skills, stayed focused on his goals and within a few years Agent Brunone joined the Border Patrol tactical unit, BORTAC, where he’s assigned to the Rio Grande Sector’s Special Operations Detachment.
    “I relish being on a team that prides itself on being the best,” he said. “You get to see first-hand how your work affects the community and benefits the nation.”
    As key members of the CBP frontline, veterans continue to serve America and protect its citizens. Many serve as CBP officers, screening passengers and cargo at more than 300 ports of entry. Others choose to become U.S. Border Patrol agents, patrolling and protecting 7,500 miles of U.S. border. Air and Marine Operations interdiction agents, whose ranks include many veterans, prevent terrorists, weapons, narcotics, illegal aliens and vehicles from illegally entering the U.S. by air and water.
    On a typical day, CBP officers and agents welcome nearly 1 million visitors, screen more than 67,000 cargo containers, arrest more than 1,100 individuals and seize nearly six tons of illicit
    drugs. To support this complex, critical mission, CBP needs men and women who have the work ethic, drive and dedication defend America’s national and economic security.
    Veterans applying to CBP will discover that hiring is simpler, easier and more convenient than in the past. CBP has streamlined the whole process and some pre-employment steps can even be performed at certain military installations nationwide.
    CBP escorts transitioning veterans to the front of the recruiting line. For CBP, it’s an opportunity to bring America’s finest into the nation’s first line of defense. For veterans, it’s an opportunity to continue serving in new and exciting positions with a competitive compensation package.
