Customs and Border Protection began its existence as the U.S. Customs Service in 1789, when it was part of the Department of the Treasury. In 2003, it became CBP when the Department of Homeland Security was established. CBP enforces laws and regulations related to collecting duties and maintaining the security of America's borders.
