Beginning on Sept 5, Blackhawk helicopters filled with elite agents roared into the city to secure a perimeter for 24 hours.

As GovExec.om reported, the New Orleans Police Department asked the Customs and Border Protection bureau to help secure the city's second and fifth districts, where gunshots had been piercing the silence.

Within six hours of the request from local officials, the agency pulled together a team of 87 agents from BORTAC and SWAT units, five Blackhawk helicopters and 20 vehicles.


The patroling operation has reportedly ended without incident.


Awesome...  Someone using their own initiative and calling for help before things got out of hand.   And someone in the USBP cutting through all the red tape and getting things done right.!

Yes I saw a news report fairly early in the event of officers doing house-to-house searching and was a bit surprised when one of the officers IDed himself as Border Patrol.
