The Department of Homeland Security's Office of Inspector General (OIG) released a report today entitled, "U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Use of Force Training and Actions to Address Use of Force Incidents." (see PDF) The OIG review was conducted in response to a sharp increase in fatalities caused by Border Patrol agents along the Southwest border since 2010, as well as a letter signed by 16 members of Congress in May 2012 calling for a review of these incidents and CBP's policies regarding all uses of force along the border and at ports of entry.
