WEST TEXAS - It's a job where you've gotta love two things: the road and the unexpected. More DPS troopers are being assigned to the Basin. According to officials, it's because the demand is so high but there's also a small shortage in the department.
Public Information Officer, Trooper Elena Viramontes, let NewsWest 9 shadow her for the morning. We hopped in with the camera shooting in the front seat while avidly listening to stories and hoped for an exciting stop.
