Police and customs store their boats and coordinate marine operations from the Marine Base on Tortola. Damage to the roof and interior of the base has impacted the ability of the police and customs to carry out operations at sea. This is one of the many ways in which the security infrastructure of the Territory has been impacted.
The RDA is currently studying different options, in collaboration with the police, customs and relevant ministries to determine which approach to repairing the facility will result in the best value for money to meet their requirements.
Repairs to the marine base will provide an effective operations base for the marine police and customs and secure storage for up to eight vessels. This in turn will bolster border control, safety at sea and security for citizens.
