US Donates Speedboats to Panama

Radar, Protection Equipment and Radios also Included

The US Embassy in Panama and the Ministry of Public Security have signed an agreement under which America will donate three Boston Whaler patrol boats, secure radios, ballistic helmets and vests and other equipment to an approx. value of $6.4 million (€5.9 million).

The donation is part of an initiative by the US DoD’s Security Cooperation Office to make the funds available through a budget item defined as “Funds for the development of capabilities of friendly countries.”

It should be noted that the equipment will be used in border security missions, internal security and in the fight against drug trafficking. The Servicio Nacional Aeronaval, the Panama National Police and the National Border Service each receive a Boston Whaler boat, while the Servicio Nacional Aeronaval also receives a radar.
