INTERNATIONAL FALLS, MINNESOTA   – May 20, 2019, 2019  (LSN—  U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Office of Field Operations, and Border Patrol recently sponsored an outreach event May 8, where students enrolled in sixth grade at Lake of the Woods Public School were provided a glimpse of a day in the life of CBP.

“The day was very enjoyable and provided the students with an understanding of the work performed by CBP,” said International Falls Port Director Anthony Jackson. “I am hopeful that the hands-on experience provided today will spark interest for these students in considering positions in CBP or public service later in life.”

CBP Supervisor Nevada Weyrauch welcomed the students and let them know they would be provided a port tour and hands-on demonstrations from CBP staff.  The students were separated into four groups and each group attended the various demonstrations.

CBP Agriculture Specialists provided students with a presentation identifying the CBP agriculture mission in rail and passenger environments.  Students were shown specimens of insects, seeds, and insect damaged wood. 

Students were provided an opportunity to complete a mock vehicle inspection and a demonstration of several different CBP inspectional tools.  Students were also provided a presentation about the process of becoming a CBP officer.  The CBP Mission, overview of daily operations, and the training academy were discussed.
