Harvard Webcast: Voices in Leadership: Public Health and Criminal Justice: Leadership Lessons

Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s Voices in Leadership program will feature “Public Health and Criminal Justice: Leadership Lessons,” a live webcast conversation with R. Gil Kerlikowske, the former Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), on Tuesday, April 4 from 12:30-1:00 p.m. Eastern. When Mr. Kerlikowske left office in January 2017, he was the only confirmed CBP Commissioner during President Obama’s administration. He is now currently an IOP Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School of Government. CBP was formed as part of the Department of Homeland Security in 2003 as a result of the recommendations issued by the 9/11 Commission. Its dual responsibilities are to secure America’s borders and facilitate lawful travel and trade. CBP is the second-largest contributor of funds to the U.S. Treasury, collecting $46 billion in Fiscal Year 2015. As the nation’s largest law enforcement agency, CBP employs 60,000 people at and between 328 ports of entry nationwide as well as in 40 countries around the world, with an annual budget approaching $13 billion.
