Southwestern Border Sheriffs' Coalition
Southwestern Border Sheriffs’ Coalition was organized to assist Sheriffs, who are empowered by their state constitutions, from Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, whose counties are situated within 25 miles of the international boundary between the United States of America and the Republic of Mexico, with the protection of lives, property and the rights of the citizens and inhabitants, maintain order and public safety in the United States along the Republic of Mexico boundary, enforce laws impartially, and provide police services in partnership with other law enforcement agencies, organizations, and community partners. In so doing, the individual States and the Nation are better served by this collaboration.
