RGV Sector enhances border security efforts in Falfurrias area
FALFURRIAS, TX — The Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector has enhanced its border security efforts in the Falfurrias area by increasing its ability to target criminal organizations and save lives.
Through a multi-layered approach that uses additional manpower detailed into the sector as well as technology such as aerostats, the Border Patrol aims to increase its operational efficiency throughout the region. The aerostats provide an enhanced detection capability and the additional manpower permits quicker response times. Having the ability to respond more rapidly will lead to more apprehensions as well as increase agents’ ability to rescue people whose lives are in danger due to the harsh environment.
The recent addition of manpower and resources allows RGV Sector to maintain its current border security operations, while at the same time permitting it to surge manpower into areas where a risk has been identified. It is anticipated that the operation will disrupt criminal organizations and degrade their ability to exploit rural highways and remote backcountry areas.
