Gil Kerlikowske, Commissioner of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, will be in Tampa Thursday speaking to a University of South Florida criminology class.
According to a USF statement, Kerlikowske will speak to students in a Crime and Justice in America course about the nation’s largest federal law enforcement agency responsible for safeguarding the American homeland. It protects against terrorists and instruments of terror, and fosters lawful international travel and trade.
The federal agency is also looking to get something out of the teach-in. A Customs and Border Protection recruitment team will be in the Marshall Student Center Atrium 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to talk to potential student recruits about “open career positions within the agency.”
Kerklikowske also plans to talk with the media after the one-hour class that ends at 2: 30 p.m.
