The Border Studies Initiative (BSI) provides training to the Texas Military Forces and groups such as local, state and federal law enforcement to further enhance understanding and knowledge about border security issues.

Training is also provided to other critical incident first responders such as medical personnel and fire fighters. Specifically, BSI provides training on issues of salience to border, hometown, and homeland security as well as issues outside the traditional scope of law enforcement that include, but are not limited to, responding to threats posed by man-made and/ or natural disasters that impact the safety and civil order of communities.
