Border Patrol Uses Risk, Data to Guide Security Operations

Border PatrolThe U.S. Border Patrol has sought a risk-based, data-driven approach to monitor border security based on information collected through technology such as drones, ground sensors and biometric identification tools, FCW reported Tuesday.

Mark Rockwell writes that the “Holding the Line in the 21st Century” series of articles by USBP Assistant Chief Robert Schroeder highlights the new approach’s focus on identifying future threats by combining and analyzing all collected data.

USBP Chief Michael Fisher told his audience at a recent Center for Strategic and International Studies event that the new technologies and available resources have helped shape the strategy.

USBP also aims to leverage situational awareness and the probability of risk over mere data, which can also give hints to planned illegal activities, the report said.
