ISLAMABAD, 13 July: Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement-Pakistan (INL-P) Deputy Director Mike McKeown attended an inauguration ceremony at the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa House in Islamabad to mark the completion of the INL-funded Frontier Constabulary’s Spina Thana Compound, and the delivery of INL-funded uniforms and personal ballistic body armor to Frontier Constabulary (FCY) personnel.
The $2.62 million Spina Thana Compound project provides offices, residential housing, barracks, mess halls, sentry posts, and pickets for 900 FCY personnel. The inauguration ceremony also recognized the recent delivery of $3 million in INL-funded equipment, including 1,500 ballistic armored vests and helmets, 30,000 sets of uniforms, 15,000 pair of boots, and 15,000 duty belts to the Frontier Constabulary.
Deputy Director McKeown, recognizing the important role that the Frontier Constabulary plays in extending the writ of government and providing security, noted that the new Spina Thana compound is strategically located at the junction of Frontier Region Kohat, Frontier Region Peshawar, and Khyber Agency in FATA; it was built adjacent to the INL-funded Frontier Corps and Levee Compounds completed in December 2015 and March 2016 at a cost of $ 1.93 million and $1.74 respectively.
“We are very grateful for the enormous support and effective collaboration with the United States government and all of the assistance from INL,” said Commandant Liaqat Ali Khan. “We hope for continued support between the FC and INL.”
In addition to the $3 million in equipment provided so far in 2017, INL will also provide over $1.75 million in armored personnel carriers to the Frontier Constabulary to help improve personal safety and extend the operational reach of the Frontier Constabulary in FATA.
The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs works in more than 90 countries to help countries combat crime and corruption; counter drug-related crime; improve police institutions, and promote laws and court systems that are fair and accountable.
