Border Programs Team

The mission of the Border Programs team is to fund grants that increase security along the Texas-Mexico and international water borders. These grants provide resources for increased patrols in order to detect, deter, and disrupt drug, human, and other contraband trafficking and crimes. Other funding is used to provide additional training and prosecution resources to handle cases resulting from border-related crime.

The Border Programs team coordinates with local law enforcement agencies, the Department of Public Safety, the United States Customs and Border Protection, and DHS to encourage the effective use of grant funds for border security operations.
