THE FBI TO OPEN AN OFFICE IN JAMAICA!

Moreno … We will have more joint operations, more training, more equipment and more extraditions.

The United States Embassy in Jamaica is to establish a local officer of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) office in Kingston.

The announcement was made by US Ambassador to Jamaica, Luis G. Moreno.

Moreno who was speaking Wednesday evening at the launch of Dialogues in Democracy, a publication produced by the Caribbean Policy Research Institute (CaPRI) argued that the move represents the commitment of the US to helping the Jamaican authorities tackle the persistent problem of crime.

“During my tenure here I was able to convince Washington to give us a fulltime alcohol, tobacco and firearms office and very shortly we are actually going to have a fulltime FBI office,” he told the small audience that had gathered for the launch of the CaPRI report.

He explained that the office will decrease the embassy’s reliance on the regional FBI office and other intelligence arrangements in Latin America.

“We will now have our own officers stationed in Jamaica and that will make working with the security forces much easier. We will have more joint operations, more training, more equipment and more extraditions,” he said.
