A member of BORSTAR Special Operations Group in El Paso deployed to Rio Grande Valley Sector along with both of his partners, a K-9 and horse.

The agent was sent to the Rio Grande Valley Sector to conduct search and rescue operations after recently completing the Rio Grande Valley Horse Patrol training.

The K-9, Jacky, is certified in search and rescue, tracking and human remains detection.

The agent hopes to acclimate the horse and K-9 duo.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection believe that the trio “will provide a unique capability of covering greater areas in a more efficient manner and potentially provide a more rapid response and life-saving aid to individuals in distress.”
