Southwest Border Security Week 2016

Welcome to the only event directly supporting state and local law enforcement efforts in securing our nation’s southwest border. Scrutiny of the southwest border protection initiatives have been growing in recent years, particularly due to a surge in transnational crime, the emergence of sophisticated terror organizations, the threat of lone wolves and malicious actors, and other illicit activity.

Consequently,we discuss macro strategies to better protect our borders. However, the men and women that are in the field, risking their lives on a daily basis, require advanced capabilities that can be tactically executed… today.

Southwest Border Security Week 2016 will bring together the key stakeholders with direct responsibility for finding workable solutions to border protection challenges and that can be implemented in the field.
