The path to become a Customs and Border Protection Officer involves several steps, leading to your being a valuable member of the Federal Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) profession.

Typical assignments include:

  • Enforcing customs, immigration, and agriculture law and regulations;
  • Facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel;
  • Conducting inspections of individuals and conveyances;
  • Determining the admissibility of individuals for entry into the United States; and
  • Preventing the illegal entry of individuals and prohibited goods and the smuggling of illegal drugs and other contraband

These positions will be filled at the entry level grade of GS-5 or GS-7 and grade level eligibility and salaries vary depending upon background, including experience and education, and duty location of the opportunity.  Current mission critical locations include:

  • Douglas and Lukeville, AZ
  • Calexico, Otay Mesa, and San Ysidro, CA
