US, Cabo Verde and Senegal Forces End AMLEP Ops
The U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard completed successive Africa Maritime Law Enforcement Partnership (AMLEP) operations with Cabo Verdean and Senegalese maritime forces respectively, Jan. 30, 2015.
Operations were conducted from joint high-speed vessel USNS Spearhead (JHSV 1), Senegalese ships and maritime patrol craft, a Portuguese maritime patrol craft, a P-3C Orion from Patrol Squadron 4, and several maritime agencies from Cabo Verde and Senegal.
The efforts of each participating unit led to an overall increase in interoperability and capability to detect and respond to potential illicit activity that threatens freedom and security in the global commons.
