    If you work IN A CORRECTIONAL FACILTY you carry no firearms.
    Officers making transport and perimeter or tower guards are armed.

    Tower and patrol have 870 Shotgun and maybe a Ruger Mini 14 with 30 round clip in the tower.

        1. Check the older threads, this has been explored in depth.
        2. Current issue to the Border Patrol is the Baretta in .40S&W. Now that they are under DHS, they may be issued SIGs.
