The Directorate of Criminal Investigation's (DCI) Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) and the Joint Anti-Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) received a major logistical boost from the United States (US).
US gifted the units with two top-of-the-range vehicles and twelve motorbikes that will greatly ensure the units deliver services efficiently.
America's Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Anti Terror Assistance Programme and the State Department Bureau of Counter Terrorism, represented by Messrs Mike Solis and Julius Nutter, presented the awards to DCI boss, Mohamed Amin.
DCI, in turn, appreciated the partnership it enjoys with the US government, stating that the developed nation has assisted the agency in fighting terrorism.
During the flagging-off ceremony, Amin appreciated the collaboration, which he credited for the overall reduction in terror-related cases.
The gifts were courtesy of the growing and improving partnership between the DCI and the US in the security sector.
Establishment of the joint terrorism task force began after the horrific Al Shabaab terrorist attack on the DusitD2 Hotel.
