INTEGRITY STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK
Preventing corruption and misconduct is important in fostering a culture of integrity because it ensures that the CBP workforce is comprised of individuals who are already committed to the highest levels of ethical conduct and continuously pursue opportunities to renew and strengthen that commitment. Prevention is a two-pronged process. First, it entails screening candidates to ensure that only those with the highest level of integrity are accepted for employment with CBP. Second, current employees are periodically reinvestigated and receive training to reaffirm their commitment to integrity. CBP employs multiple tools and capabilities to prevent workforce integrity issues including background investigations, pre-employment polygraph examinations for law enforcement candidates, periodic reinvestigations of existing employees, and numerous training options.
