I don't know if any of you know about this website but I learned about it today by listening to NPR:

BlueServo

What We Do

The Texas Border Sheriff's Coalition (TBSC) has joined BlueServoSM in a public-private partnership to deploy the Virtual Community Watch, an innovative real-time surveillance program designed to empower the public to proactively participate in fighting border crime. The TBSC BlueServoSM Virtual Community WatchSM is a network of cameras and sensors along the Texas-Mexico border that feeds live streaming video to BlueServo. Users will log in to the BlueServoSM website and directly monitor suspicious criminal activity along the border via this virtual fenceSM.

They pay pretty well.

I'm actually going to join the border patrol within a few years. No joke. Once I receive my BS in criminal justice I plan on joining them ASAP. I don't think it's a requirement to have a degree but I plan on getting one anyway.

Anyway, any assistance from any of you patriots on the forum is appreciated.

The virtual fence has been up for a while in Texas. Early on, they were having technical problems with it. I hope that's all been fixed.

It would be an interesting thing to do, to watch the cameras.

However, I wouldn't want to join the REAL boarder patrol because I would then by necessity have to live close to the boarder between the US and Mexico. OR should those pesky Canadians get out of control and start throwing themselves at the boarder, up there in that cold instead. I like where I live.

Yes, they do pay very well and in today's world there is job security not to mention excellent benefits. Your degree is unnecessary and you would be better served to join now while they are hiring and then finish your degree online. The time to get in was the last 2 yrs when they were doing expedited hiring but they have stopped that and I wouldn't be surprised to see a hiring freeze take place.

I don't agree with you guys,
but from the little that I know, you might want to help Arizona instead.

Would have to agree with you on this. AZ seems to be run over with illegals and the problems they bring. On the news this morning there was a story on how Phoenix has become the kidnapping capital with all the drugs and smugglers from Mexico. I don't hear to much about the Texas border other than what goes on in Juarez. Of course it could be that I am not watching the right newscast.
