NBPC Issues Release Regarding USAG Holder's Testimony Before the House Oversight Committee PDF Print
Friday, 03 February 2012


February 3, 2012 – On February 2, 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder appeared and gave testimony before the House Oversight Committee regarding the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and the ill conceived Operation Fast and Furious.  Several times during his testimony he was asked questions to which he would give dismissive answers or attribute the questions to political pandering or election year charades.  This was nothing new for a man who has refused to accept responsibility for this fiasco and has not disciplined any of the high-ranking officials who were involved with the approval of this operation. Instead, the ATF retaliated against whistleblowers that helped expose the dangerous operation.

VLC Course (Management): How to Slowly Destroy a Man PDF Print
Tuesday, 31 January 2012
Welcome current and future Border Patrol managers.  This course is a case study on how to slowly destroy a man and will help you deal with agents who question your poor decisions. By the end of this course, you will know how to bring those agents in line or force them out of a job.  You will also understand that there are some occasional side effects, such as: drop in morale; drop in operational effectiveness; and an occasional death.  Actually, it isn’t too occasional since there have been three in Detroit in just over two years and many more in other Border Patrol sectors. However, do not be concerned, the Border Patrol is still hiring so they are easily replaced. Also, a drop in operational effectiveness is useful in misleading Congress and the public, which makes that next promotion more likely.  As for morale, don’t be concerned. Morale has never been a priority in the Border Patrol and is becoming even less of a priority with our new management philosophy.

Suicide is NEVER the Answer PDF Print

Thanks to Terry Shigg, Local 1613 Sergeant At Arms, for taking the time to write the following article. NOTE: The links at the bottom of the page have been updated to add some additional related sites.

The #1 cop killer in the United States is police suicide. A sobering statistic in law enforcement is the fact that an officer is more likely to be a victim of suicide than a homicide. The suicide rate of law enforcement officers is also higher than the general population. The suicide rate is 11.1 per 100,000 for the general population and 18  per 100,000 for law enforcement. Suicide is devastating to families, friends and co-workers.
