We had meetings with the Chief of Police of all the south of Haiti and the Mayor of Jacmel. In our discussion we talked about their desperate need of repairs to broken down equipment and the costs to repair. To fix the two ambulances with new motors in each would be about $14,000. for both vehicles and to get a fire truck operating would be about $1200.
I talked to the Police Chief of my background in firearms training and offered my assistance to his police force. He immediate response was when could I start, so we are going to have our first training session on Monday morning with 30 of his men. Interesting point is they have no ammunition to practice with. I will teach them how they can practice without ammunition. Perhaps we can find a few cases of .38 special, 9mm and shotgun shells for them to send from Canada....
