U.S. Customs and Border Protection Boat

Jefferson-Lewis BOCES is pleased to announce that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Explorer Program will be offered at our Watertown campus beginning on December 4, 2018 and is open to area young men and women who are interested in a career in the law enforcement field.  An Open House on the program will take place on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm in Conference Room A/B at our Administrative Building on NYS Route 3, Town of Watertown.

The CBP Explorer Program is offered to students between the ages of 14-21 and explores the different career options that are available.  With so many unique career opportunities within one agency, students will have the chance to experience a wide range of law enforcement activities and choose the one that is right for them.  

“We’re excited that North Country students will have the opportunity to participate in this wonderful program, which has been such a success in other parts of the country,” said Stephen J. Todd, District Superintendent.  “Our students will benefit from this programming, which will expose them to a variety of opportunities they may wish to pursue as their educational and career experiences unfold.  We are proud to be a partner in this venture, and we are grateful that our students will have this great opportunity.”

More information on the CBP Explorer Program will be made available at the Open House on November 7.  Representatives from the agency will be on hand to answer questions.  Interested students and their parents are invited and encouraged to attend.
