Canada – Last month, an important member of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) in the Pacific Region retired. After 10 years of service, detector dog Caper is officially off duty.
Border services officer (BSO) Mark Ingalls and Caper primarily worked at land border crossings in the Pacific Highway District but also took time to attend local events and detector dog displays throughout their career together.
One highlight for the duo was when BSO Ingalls and Caper provided assistance to a local police department by conducting a vehicle search. Caper alerted to the centre console of an SUV and further inspection revealed a hidden compartment containing multiple pre-packaged narcotics. Thanks to Caper’s skill and BSO Ingalls’ expertise, these narcotics never made it into our communities.
Caper is settling into her post-career life with BSO Ingalls and his family.
