KMSB "Nogales SCC Profiles," Monday, 9/12/11, 6:55 AM

Tony Estrada, SCC Sheriff, says one of the major concerns among potential visitors to Southern Arizona today is that of “safety” along the U.S. border with Mexico. Estrada says Nogales, Arizona is extremely safe and visitors new businesses and new residents are welcome. He says what little drug related violence occurs along the SCC border with Mexico is in remote areas where no one goes anyway. He also says safety is enhanced by the abundance of people in uniform in Nogales.
