The U.S. Border Patrol will be adding a new position to better support agents and improve custody procedures.

The agency is looking to add more personnel along the U.S. Mexico border, specifically tasked only on processing apprehended individuals with a new role known as processing coordinators.

According to the job descriptions, the new coordinators will be personally responsible for transporting detainees to proceedings and medical facilities conducting welfare checks, and administrative paperwork for keeping track of detained immigrants.

This role will allow border agents focus on security and less on paperwork.
