Last month, law enforcement professionals gathered in Phoenix, Arizona to take part in the Border Security Expo. The Expo included keynote addresses from high ranking representatives from the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Border Patrol, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The event also comprised a number of panel sessions that covered a variety of border security topics, including managing and securing the U.S. – Mexico border and strategic partnerships for intelligence sharing.
During these panels, panelists credited interagency cooperation and information sharing with recent high-profile arrests. Panelists also stressed the important role interagency cooperation has in securing U.S. borders, even saying that such cooperation should possibly be federally mandated.
The 2015 Border Security Expo will be held on April 21 and 22, and will focus on countering transnational organized crime. .
