Border Patrol’s parent agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, on Wednesday announced a plan to reward rank-and-file agents and supervisors who enroll in the program with quarterly payments totaling 5% of their base salary. Agents must sign a contract to stay on with Border Patrol for 12-month stints.

The program is being rolled out quickly. Employees can sign up starting next week. Bonuses will start accruing in June and the first bonuses will be dispersed in September.
