The project was funded by the United States through the Caribbean Basin Security Arrangement.
In his address at the Ceremony on Tuesday, Prime Minister and Minister of National Security, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves expressed gratitude to the United States Government for its assistance to this country over the years.
He said St. Vincent and the Grenadines has had excellent relations with the United States for a number of years.
