The U.S. Border Patrol Academy celebrated the graduation of Session 1080 Tuesday at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC). “This graduating class of new agents will be charged with protecting our nation’s borders from Yuma Sector to the Rio Grande Valley Sector,” said SBPA Juan Di Bella. “As witnessed by over a hundred visitors and guests, Session 1080’s hard work over the last several months finally paid off when they received their new badges and were sworn into office.” The graduation ceremony included awards and a guest speech by Rio Grande Valley Sector CBPA Manuel Padilla Jr., who spoke on the importance of the Border Patrol’s Core Values.
