U.S. Customs & Border Protection Hires Student Pilots from University of North Dakota Amid Pilot Shortage

(Grand Forks, N.D. – Nov. 29, 2017) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Air and Marine Operations (AMO) has launched a program to recruit students exclusively from the University of North Dakota (UND) for careers as airborne law enforcement officers. Under the program, sophomore and junior students learn the foundation of federal law enforcement while continuing their studies at UND. AMO’s mission is to detect, sort, track, intercept and apprehend criminals using sophisticated aviation techniques.

“We constantly search for ways to assist our students in their careers and professional development, while providing solutions for real-world challenges such as the current pilot shortage,” said UND Aerospace Assistant Dean Ken Polovitz. “At UND Aerospace, we go beyond training and educating pilots to preparing individuals for leadership in government, business and industry.”
