Border Patrol Sector Headquarters.
IIPD/PR is a member of the YAI/NIPD Network. In 2003, YAI/NIPD Network's employment program in Puerto Rico received the top rating for outstanding work from the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service.
Through IIPD/PR's Club VIVIR, a three-year-old socialization, travel and recreation program.
