Station(s) type of work -
Naco & Douglas -Douglas and Naco are "Line Stations" meaning that they are both located on the border. There a numerous duties such as; Line watch, Transportation Check (busses and shuttle's) Traffic Operations(highways and checkpoints)I believe it’s pretty much the same as all of the other AZ stations save a few. They are both full gamut BP Stations. Guys and Gals stationed at either stations can expect to be absolute experts in all areas of Border Patrol work after a few years(If they wish). Both stations utilize all of the latest BP technology and have the worst vehicles :). Why the worst vehicles? Because the majority of the time patrolling the border off road. The Naco and Douglas Stations are responsible for a huge chunk of border stretching from the New Mexico/AZ state line to the Coronado National Monument.
