The guards are in charge of border control and ensuring the security of the country’s borders. The duty entails permanent observation of the borders with the purpose of detecting, alerting and preventing any violations which involves twenty-four seven surveillance.

The job is extremely difficult, sensitive and dangerous. Many border guards have lost their lives safeguarding the country’s borders against drug traffickers or terrorist groups over the past years.

Although the daily life of border guards might seem to be normal they have to be constantly vigilant to protect our lands against any wrongdoers at any time.
