CBP Providing Support to Secure The World Games

Agents working with state and local officials to ensure public safety.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers, Air and Marine Operations aircrews, and U.S. Border Patrol agents are providing additional support to secure The World Games that are currently taking place in Birmingham, Alabama. The 11-day international multi-sport event is held the year after the Summer Olympics and will run through July 17.

“U.S. Customs and Border Protection is working diligently to help secure The World Games through our advanced, vehicle scanning capabilities,” said New Orleans Director of Field Operations Steven Stavinoha. “In support of our federal, state, and local partners in Birmingham, Alabama, the Office of Field Operations is utilizing advanced equipment normally deployed at ports of entry to ensure possible weapons or illicit material are detected in commercial cargo prior to entering the sporting venues for the safety of the athletes and spectators.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. border officials as they support local and community efforts to keep The World Games secure.
  • For safety for border agents who patrol the U.S.-Mexico border as they seek to prevent the smuggling of illicit substances as well as human trafficking.
