History
The Brackettville Station was established at the beginning of WWII and originally located in Spofford, Texas. The station was renamed and moved about 10 miles north to the town of Brackettville in 1952, following a water shortage in the town of Spofford. Through the years the Brackettville offices were housed in several smaller local buildings before the current facility was constructed in 1991 at the western edge of town. The station has seen a significant increase in staffing from its early start with only a handful of agents to its current level of more than 100 agents and support personnel.

The town of Brackettville serves as the Kinney County seat and is also home to Fort Clark Springs, a former U.S. Cavalry post that first opened in 1852. With the establishment of Fort Clark, a neighboring settlement of Las Moras came into existence when Oscar B. Brackett established a supply village for the Fort. The town’s name was changed to Brackett in 1856, and later to Brackettville. The Fort was officially deactivated in early 1946 and used as a guest ranch. Today, Fort Clark Springs is a 2700 acre gated resort and leisure living community.

Area of Responsibility
The Brackettville Station area of responsibility is approximately 3,000 square miles of rough and brushy rangeland, which contains more than 250 privately owned ranches. The station is also responsible for over 16 miles of river border.


Comstock Station

32144 Highway 90 West
Comstock, Texas 78837
Phone: (432) 292-4450
Fax: (432) 292-4407

History
The Comstock station was founded in 1925 and was one of the original stations in the Del Rio Sector. In 1937, because of an increase in aircraft activity in the Langtry, Texas area, and to maintain better control of aircraft entering and leaving Mexico, a station was opened at Langtry. In 1954, the Langtry Station was closed and combined with the Comstock Station. Since impounded water above the Amistad Dam backs up almost to Langtry, a two-man duty post of the Comstock Station was established in 1970 to control illegal entries above the lake. In 1975 the Langtry Duty Post was closed and again combined with the Comstock Station. In 1961 the Comstock station, where it’s currently located, was constructed and completed. The original size of the building was 897 square feet. In 1977 the station consisted of one Patrol Agent In Charge, GS-11, and five Patrol Agents.

Currently, the Comstock Station is responsible for ensuring and maintaining border security within a specified region of the international border separating the U.S. and Mexico. Border integrity is accomplished by constant vigilance of the immediate border and by detecting and apprehending subjects responsible for illegal incursions into the United States. The Comstock Station utilizes a variety of means and methods to deter, detect and interdict border penetrations, including marine patrol operations, ground patrol operations, traffic inspections, intelligence collection and the deployment of technology.

Area of Responsibility
The Comstock Station area of responsibility encompasses 2,400 square miles, including 82 miles of international border. The international border is defined by the vast expanse of Lake Amistad and the Rio Grande River. Amistad Reservoir is comprised of 65,000 surface acres.

2285 Del Rio Blvd.
Eagle Pass, TX 78852
Phone: (830) 758-4000
Fax: (830) 758-4049

History
The Eagle Pass Station was opened in 1925 and in 1926, along with the Comstock and Del Rio stations, was included in the original makeup of the Del Rio Sector. Stations were also opened in Uvalde and Quemado, Texas during World War II to better protect the nation. In 1959 the Quemado Station was closed and the responsibility for that area was turned back over to Eagle Pass.

The station moved to its current location at 2285 Del Rio Boulevard in 1985 after the facility completion on five acres of seized land. Since the implementation of a strict 100 percent prosecutions posture dubbed “Operation Streamline” in December 2005, illegal trans-border activity has declined significantly in the Eagle Pass area. The introduction of technology has also greatly assisted in the deterrence and apprehension of illegal traffic. This coupled with some of the day-to-day operations conducted; line watch, river airboat patrol, checkpoint duties, bicycle and ATV patrol have all helped the Eagle Pass Station to steadily gain better control the International Border.

The frontline agents of the Eagle Pass Station remain ever vigilant in their efforts toward the prevention of terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the United States and the interdiction of illegal aliens and narcotics smuggling.

Eagle Pass agents are also very involved with outreach programs supporting local schools and communities while providing the community’s youth with strong positive role models. These activities include; sponsoring a youth Explorer’s post, drug demand reduction, gang violence education and graffiti eradication partnerships.

Eagle Pass’ proximity to some of the Mexican State of Coahuila’s most populous areas, its proximity to San Antonio, Texas, (a major hub and distribution point for smuggling) and the established infrastructure on both sides of the border are several factors which make Eagle Pass this Sector’s most active area.

Area of Responsibility
The Eagle Pass Station’s area of responsibility takes in approximately 1,300 square miles including 56 miles of international border.

Piedras Negras, Coah., Mexico, famed birth place of the nachos, is the city adjacent to Eagle Pass, and is the largest Mexican city in the Sector’s area, with a population estimated over 200,000. A highway from Piedras Negras to Nuevo Laredo has opened the area to the south for development and the city is expected to further expand. Several organized smuggling groups have operated in Piedras Negras over the years, utilizing public transportation from the interior to staging areas near Piedras Negras.
