New Border Patrol Strategy Focuses on Intelligence
The U.S. Border Patrol unveiled a new plan for tightening America’s borders yesterday.
The 2012-2016 Border Patrol Strategic Plan includes tactics and technologies developed over the past few years like unmanned aircraft systems – aka, drones – but also more focus on preventing risk.
The past few years have been a period of unprecedented growth in resources for the Border Patrol. Right now, there are more law enforcement officers on the border – more than 21,000 – than at any time in Border Patrol history.
