Border Security Metrics Report


The Fiscal Year 2017 National Defense Authorization Act directs the Department of Homeland Security “to develop metrics … to measure the effectiveness of security between ports of entry, at ports of entry, in the maritime environment and to measure the effectiveness of the aviation assets and operations of Air and Marine Operations of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.” This report meets this direction by providing the most comprehensive, rigorous set of border security metrics ever produced by the Department, along with a thorough discussion of the strengths and limitations of the Department’s available methodological approaches.
