Release Date: 
December 6, 2011

Tucson, Ariz. - Border Patrol agents assigned to the Tucson Sector's Naco Station participated in the 53rd Annual Holiday Parade in Sierra Vista held Saturday.

Naco agents and the Naco Explorer Post 869 climbed aboard a float they designed and constructed to take part in this year's parade. On hand, to help celebrate the festivities, were the Naco Horse Patrol; All-Terrain Vehicle units; and from the the Tucson Sector recruiting fleet, the Hummer and Charger. Naco Fire Department and the Arizona Department of Public Safety were also aboard the float to support the theme "Cochise County Heroes."

Float built by Naco Explorers and agents.

The Explorers' hard work and determination in creating the float paid off, earning them the "Best Non-commercial with Creative Concept and Design" award from Sierra Vista's Chamber of Commerce.

The Tucson Sector Border Patrol is continuing a proud tradition of community outreach through participation in local celebrations. These events allow agents to interact with the community members we serve and protect everyday.

Customs and Border Protection welcomes assistance from the community. Citizens can report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol by calling 1-(877)-872-7435 toll free. All calls will be answered and remain anonymous.
