Risk Prediction Program Fact Sheet


Each year, approximately 400 million people, 123 million land vehicles and 9 million sea containers enter the United States. To prioritize who and what gets screened and how much screening is performed, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) deploys a family of Automated Targeting Systems (ATS) and analysts. Currently, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Science & Technology (S&T) Directorate is collaborating with CBP to enhance their targeting capability through risk-based analytical tools that will increase CBP’s targeting accuracy while simultaneously reducing the time required to make targeting decisions.
