North country border crossings will get 40 more customs agents, according to U.S. Rep. William L. Owens, D-Plattsburgh.

The Canadian border stations at Alexandria Bay and Champlain each will get 20 new agents.

The number of agents now assigned was not released because of concerns about security.

The increase in customs agents comes as a part of a $165 million addition to Customs and Border Protection’s 2014 fiscal year budget, which will provide for the placement of about 2,000 additional agents across the country.
