Border Patrol Agent

Do trainees have to buy uniforms?

Yes. Upon arrival at the Academy, trainees will be measured for official Border Patrol uniforms and an initial uniform order will be placed. Trainees receive a $1,500 allowance to offset this cost; however, they are encouraged to have on hand an additional $100 for the purchase of temporary uniform items that are required when first arriving at the Academy. Thereafter, an annual uniform allowance of $500 is provided towards additional or replacement uniforms. A complete set of official and rough duty uniforms costs approximately $1,275.
