WASHINTON, D.C. (KHNL) - For the first time, the U.S. Custom and Border Protection national recruiters will look to the Aloha State to recruit civilian and military candidates.

Border Patrol recruiters will launch a one-day recruiting event on Saturday, September 6 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Blaisdell Center.

For military ID card holders with base access, Border Patrol recruiters will take part in in the Joint Employment Management System Job Fair on Wednesday, September 3 at Club Pearl on Pearl Harbor from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

CBP is working toward a total of 18,000 Border Patrol agents by the end of 2008, the largest expansion of the Border Patrol in history.

"Our agents protect America in America," said Joe Abbott, national recruiting director.  "This is as much about public education as it is recruiting Border Patrol agents.  We are embarking on a recruiting mission into states like Hawaii that may not be as familiar with the Border Patrol, and we are certain that with awareness comes interest in this unparalleled federal law enforcement opportunity."

The Border Patrol is responsible for patrolling almost 7,000 miles of Mexican and Canadian international land borders and 95,000 miles of shoreline.
