The United States (US) Embassy in Kingston on Friday donated key equipment and supplies, including cameras, radios and protective vests to assist local law enforcement with crime fighting efforts.

The donation was made at the closing ceremony for a two-day Multilateral Crime Summit in Kingston which also involved the Governments of the United States, the United Kingdom, Colombia, Canada, and the European Union, which focused on ‘Combating Crime in an Interconnected World’.

US Ambassador to Jamaica Luis Moreno said the equipment is intended to strengthen coordination, investigations, and maintain records.

“This donation also includes post incident emergency equipment to assist with the collection and preservation of evidence as well as supplies to aid in training and equipping of first responders,” he said.
