A brief video clip from April 2004 showing the presence of a Homeland Security Surveillance Tower several miles outside Tucson, Arizona along SR86.

A full resolution image of the tower is available at:

The surveillance tower was part of a so-called 'High Intensity Enforcement Area' that was in place for well over a year and was a precursor to the current suspicionless checkpoint operations being conducted further West.

Agents used surveillance gear in the tower to look into the cabs of oncoming vehicles. If you happened to be the wrong color or otherwise looked suspicious to the profiling agent, your vehicle would be marked for extra special attention from a Homeland Security agent waiting in a nearby patrol vehicle.

A promotional video from the company that makes these 'Skywatch' surveillance towers can be seen at:
