A one-stop center that would zero in on all border-related crimes could soon be opening in the county, the first of its kind operated by a sheriff’s office along the Southwest border of the United States.

The facility — to be aptly named the Border Operations Center — will be run by the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office and will likely be located between Sierra Vista and Hereford, ground zero of where most of the area’s border-related issues occur daily, said Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels on Thursday.
