  • Border control officers must meet stringent requirements, such as passing regular firearms certification tests. To that end, the program of the border station includes a shooting range. Not required in every GSA border station, this is the only such facility in Maine. The walls and standard lay-in ceiling are clad in an absorbent acoustical foam which has a convex pattern formed into its surface. The back wall, behind the targets, is a bullet trapa surface composed of rubber pellets that collects the bullets and lead and is periodically cleaned out.

    U.S. Land Port of Entry

    A new station on the border of the U.S. and Canada shows that a secure facility can also be well designed.
