Haiti - Security : The United States supports the new Border Police

Chargé d’Affaires Robin Diallo, Bureau of Narcotics and Enforcement Affairs (INL), Director Nicholas Hilgert, and other Embassy personnel have participated in the first graduation ceremony for the newly-formed Border Police and the inaugural ceremony of the new Border Police (PoliFront) Headquarters in Tabarre.

Diallo congratulated President Moïse for the government’s support to establish the unit, which will help combat trafficking in persons and contraband along Haiti’s border with the Dominican Republic.

The U.S. government’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL), funded the new Bureau of Anti-Trafficking in Narcotics (BLTS) Headquarters and continues to support the International Organization for Migration (IOM) providing motorcycles, quads, and training to the new unit. The new Border Police, known as “PoliFront,” will help the National Police of Haiti (PNH) and the government of Haiti combat transnational crime.
