Customs and Border Protection will partner with the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General to investigate corruption within CBP, the agency announced Friday.

CBP will immediately start sending internal affairs agents to OIG field offices. The CBP agents will participate in new and ongoing investigations of alleged corruption and other serious misconduct involving CBP personnel.

“We owe it to the American people and to our highly ethical employees to quickly and thoroughly investigate indications of misconduct, which this agreement will help us accomplish,” CBP Commissioner Alan Bersin said.

Bersin also said the agreement allows for both more aggressive probes of violators and quicker resolutions to false allegations against CBP personnel.

The investigators also will be responsible for enhancing the exchange of integrity-related information, data and analysis between agencies.
