Customs and Border Protection Holds Media Day Field Academy
U.S. Customs and Border Protection had their first ever field operations Media Day Field Academy at a Brownsville port of entry on Tuesday.
The academy is part of a continued aggressive plan by Port Director Michael Freeman to foster better working relationships with the local news media. The media academy consists of a series of classroom activities, practical participation and several hands-on scenarios. The one day course provides media participants with a better hands-on working knowledge and understanding of CBP. The Brownsville port of entry plans to hold several more media day academy classes each year with each one consisting of about a dozen student participants.
