Port of Entry - Forensics and Investigations Fact Sheet

The Port of Entry Forensics and Investigations program is a multi-year effort within the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate that will enhance the department’s capability to (1) detect the transport of contraband and counterfeit merchandise in inbound and outbound cargo at ports of entry and (2) detect and prosecute illegal activity through the forensic analysis of material collected from suspicious cargo and packages. The program also invests in analysis methods that transform new and existing cargo security data into actionable information with the goal of improving targeting that will increase the probability of detecting illegal cargo and expedite the delivery of legitimate cargo.
