CBP Agriculture Specialists do not have firearms and do not need body armor in their line of work. Some of these officers have actually lost their body armor and had to have it replaced. All CBPA's were initially issued body armor about 5 yrs ago. Now our department is replacing that body armor because it might not fit anymore. Instead of automatically replacing expensive body armor - have officers try on their body armor for correct fit BEFORE ordering brand new body armor which isn't needed by Agriculture Specialists to begin with!
