DESCRIPTION

NEW Episodes premiere Tuesdays at 9:00pm

Phony tourists here to work, belligerent visitors smuggling contraband, toys packed with heroin, weapons disguised as cell phones: all are just another day at the office for the Canada Border Services Agency.

Every day, twenty thousand passengers request entry into Canada by way of Vancouver International Airport (YVR), and many more at land crossings in the Lower Mainland of BC. While most experience the usual uneasiness that comes with passing through immigration and customs, others have more legitimate reasons to feel nervous.

“Every passenger has a ‘story’...it’s our job to dig deeper for the truth.” - Lori Miller, Border Services Officer.

Welcome to Border Security - a revealing look at life on the front lines of national security.  Follow Canadian border services officers as they intercept suspicious characters and contraband from around the world in an effort to keep us safe, and our health, workforce, and ecosystem secure.

Force Four Entertainment has gained exclusive access into the highly classified world of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). In every episode of Border Security, cameras shadow CBSA officers as they interrogate suspicious passengers who may or may not be hiding something.  Passengers react in a variety of unpredictable ways - they lie, argue, play the victim, plead ignorance and even threaten legal action.  But they are no match for the investigative tactics of the CBSA officers.  After all, the law is on their side.

And unfortunately for the passengers being questioned, so is technology. Throughout the episode, officers question, cross-examine, inspect, pat down, swab, search and x-ray suspects and their belongings, chipping away at the holes in their stories.  For viewers, it’s a wild, unpredictable ride as each passenger’s secret is finally revealed.

Border Security is a dynamic documentary series that offers viewers a front row seat to high stakes, bizarre reveals, and comical conflicts that are part of everyday life for border security officers.  

Border Security, a show that will make you think twice the next time you consider hiding anything in your luggage.
