Rodney Scott, Chief Patrol Agent, San Diego Sector
February 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
On Wednesday Dec. 13, 2017, the San Diego Sector Border Patrol welcomed its newest Chief Patrol Agent Rodney S. Scott.
Chief Scott manages more than 2,400 law enforcement agents and support staff and has direct oversight of the area’s eight Border Patrol stations. San Diego Sector’s area of responsibility includes 60 linear miles of international boundary with Mexico and the entire California coastal region.
Prior to his new appointment, he served as the CPA of the El Centro Sector, as the Deputy Chief Patrol Agent at SDC, and as the Patrol Agent in Charge at the Brown Field Station in SDC. He also has held a variety of leadership positions, including Assistant Chief within CBP’s Office of Anti-Terrorism in Washington, D.C., and as the Director/Division Chief for the Incident Management and Operations Coordination Division at CBP Headquarters.
Chief Scott will provide a “State of the U.S./Mexico border” specific to San Diego and provide context to the ongoing humanitarian and security crisis. Are the Central American caravans a national security threat or a humanitarian issue? There is already a fence along the border between San Diego and Tijuana, do we really need a border wall? He will provide his perspective on these questions and more.
