Officers will provide training and mentorship on subjects including maritime firefighting, counter smuggling, human trafficking, K-9 detection of explosives/narcotics, aviation security, vessel operations, maritime tactical training and dive operations. This is State’s second such partnership and builds on its existing work with PortMiami to provide security assistance to Latin America and the Caribbean.
