Preclearance personnel complete the same immigration, customs, and agriculture inspections of U.S.-bound international air travelers that are otherwise performed by CBP on arrival in the U.S., before departure from foreign airports. CBP has begun talks to expand its air preclearance program to 10 additional airports in nine countries, and our goal is to preclear 33 percent of all U.S.-bound travelers by 2024. S&BP: In what ways is CBP partnering with other government agencies to protect the country's southern border? Mr. Kerlikowske: I've already talked about the Joint Task Force structure – specifically JTF West – and I've described the IBETs. These are excellent examples of collaboration with other Federal, state, and local agencies. There are other examples, too: in our border regions – especially on our Southern border – we team up with Sheriff 's offices to systematically detect, arrest, and prosecute smugglers and scouts who are active on our interstate highways. I also want to mention the Operation Stonegarden grant program, which is a DHS-funded, CBP-facilitated operation designed to enhance border security on federal and tribal land by developing a multilateral enforcement effort between the Border Patrol and State, local and tribal law enforcement agencies. We're also committed to providing support and training – wherever and however our resources permit – to state and local law enforcement agencies. For example, we have an Advanced Training Center in Harpers Ferry, WV that we make available to other law enforcement agencies. complimentary subscription Take an Accelerated Path Toward Your Degree Your military occupation can put your associate's degree within reach.* > Combat Arms 11B/11C/19D/19K (Skill Level 30+)—as few as 8 courses to earn a criminal justice degree; 9 or 10 courses to earn a business degree > Medical 68W and many other allied health specialties—as few as 5 courses to earn a health sciences degree > Military Police 31B (Skill Levels 30/40)—as few as 5 courses to earn a criminal justice degree > Other military training and prior learning may also qualify for college credit > Get your MOS evaluated for college credit at Skill level requirements apply.
