The Border Patrol topic provides current news and information about ongoing border protection issues and challenges. The Border Patrol, along with hundreds of local agencies under whose jurisdiction that border falls, are responsible for protecting 8,000 miles of U.S. border, not including many thousands of miles of shoreline.
PoliceOne Senior Editor Doug Wyllie here... I've been howling about this issue for more than eight years — probably more like nine years — and I know I'm not alone. Law enforcers have been fighting this threat much longer than that. If you would like to add your voice to the column I'm writing about this for an upcoming PoliceOne Newsletter, please send me an email with your brief comment, as well as your name and agency.
