According to the Jamaica Information Service (JIS), Minister of National Security Robert Montague revealed that Jamaica will be purchasing 40 dogs from the Cuban Government to be used primarily for the detection of guns and drugs, in addition to search and rescue.

The island will reportedly send 40 trainers via the Jamaica Constabulary Force to Cuba to work with the dogs.
