Yuma Sector has new assistant chief patrol agents

Two Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents have new duties this week, after one was promoted and another reassigned.

Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Stephen S. Martin has announced the promotion of Agent Timothy Henry and the reassignment of Jerome Wofford to assistant chief patrol agent (ACPA) positions at the Yuma Sector Headquarters. Both are graduates of the Customs and Border Protection's Command Leadership Academy.

Wofford, a 21-year veteran of the Border Patrol, moved with his family to Yuma when he was 6 years old, is a 1981 graduate of Yuma High School and attended Arizona Western College. His most recent previous assignment was as ACPA in El Centro Sector, where oversaw station operations, labor and employee relations, facilities, tactical infrastructure, health and safety and numerous other responsibilities.

Henry, a 26-year veteran, was acting assistant chief patrol agent at El Centro Sector prior to being promoted to his permanent position in Yuma. In addition to patrolling the border, Henry has also been assigned to the El Centro Sector prosecutions department, the employer sanctions department and the Calexico Station Intelligence Unit.

Welcoming the two new ACPAs, Martin stated, “With diverse backgrounds and nearly 50 years of combined Border Patrol experience, we are excited to have ACPAs Henry and Wofford on board.”
