Jeffrey Kirkman, Nogales Police Chief, says Nogales, Arizona continually ranks among the safest cities in the U.S. He says the Nogales Police Dept. certainly has a role in keeping it this way. KHe says Nogales has not seen any spillover violence from Mexico. He says drug runners do not routinely target residents of border towns. He says with hundreds of Border Patrol agents and numerous other law officers swarming the Arizona side, smugglers pass through as quickly and unobtrusively as possible.
