U.S. Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operations Annual Review (2018)   [open pdf - 62MB]

From the Document: "I am pleased to present the Air and Marine Operations (AMO) Annual Review, Fiscal Year 2018 edition. This year's achievements, milestones, and award winners demonstrate commitment to safety and operational excellence. One incredible example is the P-3 aircraft represented on the cover of this year's Annual Review. In Fiscal Year 2018, AMO's National Air Security Operations P-3 program was instrumental in the disruption of the most cocaine in the history of the program's existence -- 258,296 lbs of cocaine were disrupted as a result of the illicit traffic our P-3 aircrews detected and tracked beyond our nation's borders. While that is an impressive feat, it was done in a year when the U.S. government's overall cocaine seizures declined. The dynamic of those two facts is a significant statement on the effectiveness by which AMO manages and safely uses our unique resources against threats. I truly believe in the philosophy that safe and effective operations can be conducted simultaneously. In 2018, I introduced the initial elements of AMO's Safety Management System, a comprehensive approach to safety that combines the very best safety practices that have proven effective across diverse organizations and industries. I am excited and encouraged by the safety innovation and adaptation being developed and implemented at our organization."
