Guidance Reminder: The Agency Is 'Customs And Border Protection' : Memmos There is a "U.S. Border Patrol" within it and there are border patrol agents, but the name of the agency ends with "Protection," not "Patrol."

Guidance Reminder: The Agency Is 'Customs And Border Protection'

On a few occasions recently we've said or written "Customs and Border Patrol." That's a mistake.

Please remember: the agency's name ends with "Protection," not "Patrol."

It's Customs and Border Protection.

True, there is a United States Border Patrol within the agency. The Border Patrol has agents and officers.

But, again, there is no agency called "Customs and Border Patrol."
