The Government of the United States has donated four state-of-the-art trucks for border patrol and the fight against drug trafficking in Peru.
Valued at US$700,000, the trucks will facilitate the inspection of vehicles, vessels, as well as containers at ports, airports, and border control points.
The trucks are fully equipped and stocked with more than 700 instruments and tools for inspectors to meet national security objectives.
The vehicles will be allocated to Sunat and the National Police (PNP) Chemical Control Division for their operation in Tumbes, Tacna, and Callao.
"Such operations demand rapid solutions, as well as mobile equipment so that legal shipments can move rapidly. This will ensure optimal inspections of suspicious or illegal cargo containers," he added.
