The U.S. Border Patrol's Havre Sector has announced the arrival of Chief Patrol Agent Eduardo Payan.

Payan, who most recently served as the Chief Patrol Agent at the Buffalo Sector, is a 33-year veteran of the U.S. Border Patrol, and will assume command of Havre Sector on Jan. 17.

Payan will replace Chief Sean L. McGoffin, who recently transferred to Texas to serve as the chief patrol agent of the Big Bend Sector.

"I am excited for the opportunity to lead the team in Havre Sector, and look forward to maintaining and enhancing community relations and strategic partnerships, crucial for security along the Northern Border," Payan said.

Payan began his career in El Cajon, California, in 1987. Over the course of his three-plus decades with the Border Patrol, Payan has held many positions throughout the nation. These included multiple supervisory roles in the Rio Grande Valley Sector, Texas, as well as having held a variety of key leadership positions at the U.S. Border Patrol Headquarters in Washington, D.C. For the past 10 years, Payan has been serving the Buffalo Sector, where he has risen through the ranks within the Sector Command Staff, having ultimately attained the chief position there.

The Havre Sector, which encompasses approximately 440,000 square miles in the states of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah, maintains six Border Patrol stations along the 456 border miles between the Rocky Mountains and the North Dakota state line.
