Liberian Coast Guard enhances maritime security capacity

Liberian Coast Guard Seaman Gayflor Dardu cautiously approaches Lt. j.g. Charles Blawah while using passive compliant techniques learned during a boarding officer training course provided by U.S. Embassy-Monrovia at the Liberian Coast Guard Base Feb. 6. U.S. Embassy-Monrovia brought in a U.S. Coast Guard mobile training team from the International Training Detachment of Coast Guard Training Base Yorktown, Va., to instruct the class of more than 20 LCG students on maritime security surrounding boarding of vessels. U.S. Embassy-Monrovia, in coordination with U.S. Africa Command, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa and Operation ONWARD LIBERTY, partner with the Government of Liberia to enhance the operational capabilities of the Liberian Coast Guard and the Armed Forces of Liberia. ONWARD LIBERTY is a U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa-led operation comprised of joint U.S. service members who mentor and advise the AFL in order to develop a national military that is responsible, operationally capable, and respectful of civilian authority and the rule of law. OOL's goal is to assist the AFL in building a professional and capable military force that can effectively contribute to the overall security environment in Liberia.
