The American Ambassador to Haiti, Michele J. Sison reiterated the United States support to the National Police of Haiti (PNH) and will work to continue strengthen the new Police Unit, Polifront, launched by President Jovenel Moise, back in December 2017, to combat contraband and human trafficking at the border with the Dominican Republic.

Ms Sison also participated a day before, in a ceremony with the International Organization for Migrant (IOM) and representatives of PNH to hand over five vehicles to POLIFRONT. During that ceremony, IOM’s head of Mission, Fabien Sambussy, said that he was delighted by the creation of this unity, which can combat crime, migration and smuggling, and believes that these new vehicles will allow Polifront officers to better perform their tasks.
