CBP Attaché

CBP is the Department of Homeland Security’s largest agency. CBP protects our nation’s borders from terrorism, human and drug smuggling, illegal migration, and agricultural pests while simultaneously facilitating the flow of legitimate travel and trade.

As the nation’s single unified border agency, CBP’s mission is vitally important for the protection of the American people and the national economy. Nearly 60,000 CBP employees work in a variety of ways to secure the nation’s borders both at and between the official ports of entry and also to extend our zone of security. Employees continually incorporate the core values of vigilance, service to country, and integrity into their actions.
