Talbot County Sheriff Dallas Pope participated in narco-terror seminar on Texas border with Mexico

Sheriffs attending the summit were hosted by Texas Hudspeth County Sheriff Arvin West who shares a county border of 98 miles with Mexico; of which only 4 miles have a 16 foot border fence.

In the Mexican town of Praxedis G. Guerrero which abuts Hudspeth County, former police Chief Manuel Castro was tortured, killed, and beheaded in 2009. In addition to cross border crime issues, the role of policing this open border falls to the US Border Patrol and the 14 Deputies of the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office.
