The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Yuma Sector in Arizona, the San Luis Port of Entry, and the Office of Air and Marine have teamed up to launch a free 5-week Citizens Academy program.
This program takes an in depth tour of the border security operations along the Arizona-Mexico border and educates citizens about how law enforcement officials protect and secure the border.
The program will begin on February 26 and include walking tours along the border, live demonstrations, and presentations during the weekly classes that continue through March 26. Classes will be held on Wednesdays between 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. MST and can include up to 20 people. This program will be conducted in English and there is another program under development for Spanish speakers.
