Drug-related homicides have dramatically increased in recent years in Mexico along the nearly 2,000-mile border it shares with the United States. U.S. federal, state, and local officials have stated that the prospect of crime, including violence, spilling over from Mexico into the southwestern United States is a concern.

This book reviews the crime rates and assesses information on spillover crime along the border, with a focus on what information reported crime rates in southwest border communities provide on spillover crime; and what efforts have federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies made to track this issue.
