Southern Border Region: Today, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released two documents in relation to Border Patrol use-of-force policies. The first is a directive to Border Patrol agents intended to lessen the “likelihood of deadly force situations and reduce the risk of injury or death to agents and others,” while the second document is the CBP Use of Force Policy Handbook in a less redacted version than previously available.
