President proposes historic numbers of CBP officers
from Federal Times
Customs and Border Protection would hire 2,000 more officers — boosting its total to 25,775 — under the fiscal 2015 budget proposal released March 4. The increase would come on top of another 2,000-officer increase approved for CBP in the fiscal 2014 budget passed in January. Colleen Kelley, the president of the National Treasury Employees Union, which represents CBP officers, said the proposal represents "historic" levels of staffing for the agency and will help process the increased traffic at land ports of entry across the country.
