UVALDE CRISIS - Please scroll down to see an announcement concerning members who may be affected by the Uvalde Crisis.

Border Patrol Supervisors’ Association

Welcome to the Border Patrol Supervisors’ Association (BPSA) website. The BPSA was established in 1990 in San Diego, California, to provide Legal Defense Coverage for its members. Through affiliated membership with the Police Officers Research Association of California (PORAC), the BPSA also provides its members access to other great discount programs and insurances such as Personal, Accidental Insurance, Health, Home, and Auto coverage. Our main goal in today’s litigious society is to provide coverage for our members in the performance of their duties while on or off duty. For coverage information, please visit our coverage page.

The BPSA has grown from under 100 members in San Diego CA in 2004 to about 700 members nationwide. We have the majority of members in San Diego Sector but also have membership spread out throughout the 20 sectors, to include DC Headquarters. Our executive board has continued to serve our members on a volunteer basis by ensuring dues to our parent organization, PORAC and the PORAC Legal Defense Fund (LDF), stay current so we can continue having legal coverage.

We acknowledge the majority of members join the BPSA for LDF coverage and think it ends there. It does not. The BPSA engages with its members to provide support in the times of needs, offers annual Scholarship opportunities, retirement gifts, and the annual Christmas Party in San Diego, California, among the day-to-day support and engagement with supervisors’ questions.

The BPSA strives to support causes that impact its members. While we have donation limits, the BPSA supports its members and the organization in one way or another. In May 2022, the BPSA voted on an immediate monetary contribution to the family of any active BPSA member who passes on or off duty. Feel free to contact usbpsasecretary@gmail.com to discuss any support you wish the BPSA to help with or if you have any questions.

   Uvalde Crisis (Welfare Check)

5/25/2022: Welfare Check – Uvalde Crisis – The Border Patrol Supervisors’ Association would like to take this time to do a welfare check from our BPSA members impacted by these events. Please contact me via phone, text, or email if you need any support. Currently, CBP and USBP have deployed Tier teams consisting of clinicians, peer support, and resiliency teams. Additionally, our EMT, SOD teams, civilians, and children have been exposed to horrific scenes, and the different Del Rio Sector/Station Morale and Welfare and Recreation need our support. While the Border Patrol Supervisors’ Association would love to donate as much as we can, we are bound by donation limits and limited to supporting our members. To be able to support one way or another, we have contacted some POCs in Del Rio Sector.

Here is the info for Del Rio local MWR(s). Please share and help support those in need during these critical times. Thank you.

  Covid Hazardous Duty Pay Lawsuit

The law office of Mason Lietz & Klinger has agreed to take our hazardous duty class action lawsuit for BPSA members on a contingency basis pending the outcome of the federal appeals court. There are some legal roadblocks for the case as the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) was already denied their case which is currently in appeal. If the appeal is won for BOP it would open the door for BPSA as well as other federal agencies to seek hazardous duty pay based on contact detainees with active COVID. If it is lost, then the case would most likely be dismissed at no cost to BPSA. We will keep you updated of the status and/if any documents need to be signed by membership.

UPDATE: BPSA members from each sector are needed to be named as litigants if the BOP case is won. In such case, attorneys need information about exposure levels agency-wide and would need to schedule interviews with members impacted across the nation. If you are interested, contact the usbpsasecretary@gmail.com stating so. Updates to follow.

5/6/2022 to 7/1/2022
