          Real Question: What is OFO? What is the mission?
          OFO(Office of Field Operations) is the branch of CBP most CBPO's work under. See list below:


          - Office of Air and Marine - Assistant Commissioner, Michael C. Kostelnik

          - Office of Border Patrol - Chief of the Border Patrol, David V. Aguilar
          The Office of Border Patrol, headed by the Chief, CBP Border Patrol, is the primary federal law enforcement organization responsible for preventing the entry of terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the United States between official U.S. Customs and Border Protection ports of entry. Their traditional mission is to enforce immigration laws and to detect, interdict and apprehend those who attempt to illegally enter or smuggle people or contraband across U.S. borders between official ports of entry. The Border Patrol has a workforce of over 12,700 employees, of whom 11,120 are agents assigned to patrol the more than 6,000 miles of America's land borders.

It directs national enforcement responses through effective targeting of goods crossing the border as well as strict, swift punitive actions against companies participating in predatory trade practices. Through coordination with international partners and other U.S. government agencies it directs the enforcement of intellectual property rights, the identification of risks to detect and prevent the importation of contaminated agricultural or food products and the enforcement of free trade agreement eligibility. By promoting trade facilitation through partnership programs, the Office of Trade will streamline the flow of legitimate shipments and foster corporate self-governance as a means of achieving compliance with trade laws and regulations. A risk-based audit program is used to respond to allegations of commercial fraud and to conduct corporate reviews of internal controls to ensure importers comply with trade laws and regulations. Finally, the Office of Trade provides the legal tools to promote facilitation and compliance with customs, trade and border security requirements through: the issuance of all CBP regulations, legally binding rulings and decisions, informed compliance publications and structured programs for external CBP training and outreach on international trade laws and CBP regulations.

          • If and when we eventually get hired lets agree that if we become successful and rise to the top in cbp ranks we will make the hiring processing as transparent as we possibly can. By transparent I mean giving candidates as much foresight as possibly regarding hiring time frames.

            • That list of the organizational chart I posted looks to be dated. There are far more than 11K+ BPA's currently in the field.

              Still, it gives a good idea of what's where and who does what.

                        • Just as a clarification - if you are talking about making sure you use the correct acronyms, CBP is Customs and Border Protection.

                          BP (Border Patrol) is a unit of CBP, as is OFO (Office of Field Ops). CBPOs are uniformed officers of OFO, BPAs are uniformed agents of OBP (Office of Border Patrol).

                          Both BPAs and CBPOs 'are CBP' - they work for the same agency, different offices, and both wear the same patch (in different colors) on one shoulder (with an office specific patch on the other).

                          I agree that the poster was probably talking about becoming a BP Agent as he used the word 'sector', but it would be accurate to say he was talking about BP, not OFO, as both CBPO and BPA are employees of CBP.

                          If it's not I stand corrected, but I think it is.
                          Back on page 733 he posts he got the call and mentions non CBP areas, many people post on the page that he is talking about BP not CBP. Check it out, it's confusing. It looks like he thinks he is posting on a BP forum.
                          I guess it doesn't really matter, only when he says he got the call for Detroit and his TSU date is after others, it's confusing those Michigan people in TSU.

                          • You'd likely look hard to find many PA's who embrace the fact that they work for CBP. Most PA's want as little to do with carrying the moniker "CBP" as possible.

                                Congrats! Only 7 or 8 hundred more to go! I'd bet that the reason CBP isn't hiring right now is because Napolitano believes that the new kiosks can do the CBPO's job for them.

                                Our hiring spree started under the previous admin. This administration has no interest in the hiring spree of the past admin.
