TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Customs and Border Protection is hiring nationwide to help cut down wait times while still stopping illegal drugs and other contraband.

The agency confirmed it is looking to add about 2,000 additional officers over the next year to work at entry-level ports, like the ones in Nogales.

“We are recruiting applicants of the highest integrity and moral character to become members of the CBP workforce,” Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske said. “We are looking for candidates who want to serve and protect this country and who meet the rigorous employment standards of the CBP officer position.”

To apply, an applicant must be a U.S. citizen and have been a resident of the U.S. over the past three years; needs a valid driver’s license and will need to be referred for selection prior to the applicant’s 37th birthday. Applicants must pass an entrance examination, medical examination, physical fitness assessments, video-based test and/or structured interview, drug test, background investigation and polygraph examination, according to a news release.

CBP says nearly 30 percent of its employees are military veterans.

CBP notes it is an equal opportunity employer and encourages women and minorities to apply so the agency can create a workforce that reflects the diversity of America.

Applicants are required to have a USA Jobs account and complete an online application at www.usajobs.gov.
