Go-Fast boats arrive

Three Go-Fast boats, donated to the Jamaican police force by the United States Government in an ongoing anti-narcotics assistance programme, arrived in the island earlier this month.

The boats are to be used by the Marine Police who, along with the Jamaica Defence Force Coast Guard, patrol the island's coasts.

National Security Minister Dr Peter had last year told the country that we would be getting the boats from the Americans.

Here, one of the boats is being off loaded from a ship on arrival in Kingston. The other photo shows the three boats docked in the harbour.
