Dogs Win Compared to CBP Officer December 12, 2008
Q: How do dogs compare with people in examining vehicles, cargo, or mail?
A: At border ports a canine team can examine a vehicle in 5 to 6 minutes. Even a cursory search by a CBP Officer without a canine would require at least 20 minutes. Canines can check packages in a fraction of the time needed by mail examiners. A canine team can process 400 to 500 packages in approximately 30 minutes.
