Japanese vessels to help boost security of Jamaica’s borders
Commissioner of Police, Major General Antony Anderson, has welcomed the gift of 6 marine vessels from the Japanese government.
The commissioner says the vessels will aid the marine police in securing the country’s borders.
He was speaking yesterday at the handing over of one of the vessels, a rubber hull inflatable boat.
Three patrol boats are scheduled to arrive in Jamaica at the end of January next year.
Commissioner Anderson noted that the police require the use of proper equipment, to bolster efforts at thwarting smuggling and infiltration of Jamaica’s borders.
He pointed out that the vessels will also help in keeping beach users safe.
