Report Date: 01/18/2008
 
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
 Project Fence 225 is a Department of Homeland Security initiative designed to providetactical infrastructure and technology deployment supplemented by a mobile lawenforcement presence. The deployment of the tactical infrastructure will enhance border security and prevent the entry of terrorists and terrorist weapons of mass effect while atthe same time impacting upon human trafficking and narcotics organizations’ ability tooperate along our Nation’s border.Project Fence 225 will augment current station resources along with future technologiesdeployed via the SBI
net 
program in targeted areas to achieve operational control of thenation’s northern and southern borders. The deployment of the tactical infrastructure isgeared toward disrupting identified routes of ingress into the United States that areutilized by smugglers and potential terrorists, providing RGV Sector the means toformulate pre-emptive strategies to address these incursions through the deployment andintegration of tactical infrastructure, technology and personnel.RGV border stations have identified several significant areas where a border securityfence will assist with achieving the mission of the border patrol. These projects areknown as RGV Sector Projects O-1 through O-21. These areas have been selected for the placement of a fence based on the operational necessity in each particular area. Eachselected area has geographic characteristics requiring an actual physical barrier inconjunction with the appropriate mix of personnel and detection technology.
SITUATIONGeneral Situation:
PF 225 is designed to provide for additional tactical infrastructure deployment (border fencing), to enhance current law enforcement patrols, and to coordinate governmentenforcement assets and to address the high volume of illicit trafficking activities in andaround the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector. This deployment of tactical infrastructurewill target high traffic areas in order to enhance the probability of apprehension of terrorists, weapons of mass effect (WME), Aliens from Special Interest Countries(ASIC), Other Than Mexican (OTM), Undocumented Migrants (UDM), HumanTrafficking Organizations (HTO) and Drug Trafficking Organizations (DTO) fromentering illegally through the RGV Area of Responsibility.

General Concept:
The concept of the operation is to deploy tactical infrastructure while utilizing currentand future technological assets throughout the approximately pre-designated 70.00 milesof targeted areas. It will provide field agents with real-time intelligence and a tacticaladvantage over illegal entries throughout the operational area. This operation willstrengthen the Sector’s defense in-depth strategy and is intended to push the station’snorthern depth of intrusion as far south from the IBWC levee as possible, and with theimplementation of additional technologies will ultimately push operational control as far south as the US/Mexico border.
Synopsis of Each ProjectProject O-1 Roma & Project O-2 Rio Grande City, Texas
The terrain throughout the Rio Grande City Area of Responsibility consists of urban,rural and remote areas. The rural areas consist of both farmlands with wooded areaslining the river’s edge, and rolling hills that are dense in brush and cacti. The urban areasconsist of neighborhoods and businesses within close proximity to the river. Pedestrianfencing would cover several river miles of urban area in the cities of Roma (project O-1),Rio Grande City, Texas (project O-2) and the rural areas immediately adjacent to thesecities. This pedestrian fencing would cover approximately 3.8 miles of urban and ruralarea in Roma, Texas. In Rio Grande City, Texas pedestrian fencing would cover approximately 8.7 miles of urban and rural area.
