"The "Below Ten: Mobilizing Border Cities to Address Guns, Drugs, and Human Trafficking"2 project was designed to explore the application of community policing principles (partnerships, problem solving, and organizational transformation) to the unique challenges faced by communities on the southern border of the United States— the intense nature of trafficking in guns, drugs, and human beings and the impact this trafficking has on local communities. More specifically, "below ten" refers to collaborations in three of the 10 border cities on or south of Interstate 10 in the four southwest border states—Nogales, Arizona; Pharr, Texas; and San Diego County, California. Each jurisdiction participated in the project, with a unique context and area of interest. The project ran from October 2012 to December 2016." -- Page 14.
