U.S. Border Agents to Wear Body Cameras

Agency says the practice will “better enhance its policing practices.”

On Wednesday, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that some agents have begun to receive body-worn cameras “to better enhance its policing practices and reinforce trust and transparency.” The deployment will outfit approximately 7,500 body cameras in phases. The agency intends to have 6,000 in use by year’s end.

“Our agents and officers serve the public and protect our borders every day with great skill and professionalism,” said Troy Miller, CBP Acting Commissioner.  “Providing them with state-of-the-art technology and tools like body-worn cameras will support their work and provide greater transparency into interactions between CBP officers and agents and the public.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For CBP agents as they interact with immigrants and others crossing the U.S. border.
  • For Acting Commissioner Miller as he leads the agency.
  • For the Department of Homeland Security as officials handle the immense number of undocumented people entering the nation.
