  • Officers Using Aliases

    This may be a peculiar question... I am considering a position with Border Patrol. I have read several articles and posts about bounties on agents and reprisals on them and their families. I have a very uncommon last name. If you google my last name, my home address is the first hit. Is it possible for an agent to have an "on duty alias" in order to keep his/her personal life, just that, personal?

      I know a lot of officers that will use a fake first name.

      Officer "Jacob Martin" may give a contact "Jimmy" as a first name after said contact sees "J. Martin" on his name badge.

        and it's not really a big problem - something to keep in mind, and there are requests you can make to keep your information personal and secured on some websites, but they'll tell you all of that in the academy.
        They don't allow it in Corrections either.


        I had an inmate mail me a legally threatening letter that actually made it to my house. The Associate Superintendent called me into her office and showed me the letter. She told me that the Attorney General couldn't block it. Fortunately, it was to an old address but it was only the block and not the actual street number. The post office forwarded it and once I received it I wrote him up for it. He was found guilty and lost good time.

            The irony is that we're all using aliases to post on the internet...

              It's not an Alias, it's a codename.

                Actually, I believe it is called a "User Name" in these and most forums.
                Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

                    I'm begining to understand why you chose the name 'KJB'.

                      There are other things that you can do but because this is a public forum you prolly wont get many answers.

                          There is usually a way to request to have your personal information removed from many such Websites. Read the information here: http://www.whitepages.com/privacy_central. Also, scroll to the bottom to see a list of other similar sites that you will also need to request to have your information removed from. Keep in mind that if you move, switch utility companies, etc., oftentimes your information can be re-posted on these Websites because they use tools that automatically search for new updates.

                            Wait, what?

                            Well, wait until I tell Mrs. Class that the rest of you folks just make your names up. For shame...

                              A couple of simple things you can do:
                              Get a P.O. Box - all repeat ALL mail goes to the P.O. Box.
                              Use a cell phone for your home phone - with the address that of the P.O. Box
