There’s a new sheriff’s team in town and its sole focus is to stamp out border-related crime, especially smuggling of human beings and narcotics.

The six-deputy Crime Interdiction Team — the group is made up of five deputies and one sheriff’s sergeant — are known as “high-speed” deputies, well-versed in everything from DUIs to human smuggling and drug trafficking. They’re working together all over Cochise County to make a dent in the border-related offenses that have been plaguing the area for the last several months, said Sheriff Mark Dannels.
