Public safety is everyone’s responsibility. Have fun, but be vigilant, too. If you see something – something you know is out of place, or someone’s behavior doesn’t seem quite right – say something! Report suspicious activity to a uniformed officer or call 911. Be prepared to describe:

  • Who or what you saw
  • When you saw it
  • Where it occurred
  • Why it’s suspicious

Harbor Police Assist Jamaica with Maritime Police Training

Jamaica missionA team of Harbor Police officers recently returned from a deployment to Jamaica where they provided mentoring and assessment training to maritime police from several port towns as part of U.S. efforts to promote maritime security around the world.

Through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, the Harbor Police Department is tapped to share best practices with law enforcement agencies for ports and harbors around the world to support foreign port security and fight international crime. The Harbor Police Department MOU was signed in April 2015.

During the Jamaica deployment, which ran from February 16 through February 25, 2016, Harbor Police officers worked with a police advisor from the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs to observe patrol procedures and to inspect police vessels to ensure that they were safe and maintained. The Port’s lead fleet mechanic also traveled with the group to provide guidance and advice on vessel maintenance procedures.
