Border Security Spotlighted During Upcoming Public Forum

The “Border Patrol Community Forum – Then & Now" takes place Feb. 23.

Those interested in learning more about Border Patrol security from agents in the field will have a chance to do so later this month during an educational community forum being held near the U.S.-Mexico boundary.

Dubbed the “Border Patrol Community Forum – Then & Now,” the open meeting takes place Feb. 23 beginning at 6 p.m. at Casa Familiar Civic Center located at 212 West Park Avenue in San Ysidro.

The event is being led by the U.S. Border Patrol, San Diego Sector.

The meeting’s purpose is “to share information and answer questions concerning the Border Patrol and border security,” according to Border Patrol spokesman Scott Simon.

The forum follows a Border Patrol five-week training event held late last year in San Diego for citizens. The hands-on training encompassed operations, technology, and field orientation, to give citizens an inside look at the Border Patrol, according to Simon.

For more information about the Feb. 23 forum or future Border Patrol events, contact Diana Hinojosa at 619-216-4259.
