JCET Moves Into High Gear

Members of the SouthCom, TTDF and TTPS engage in training during JCET 2016

As the Joint Combined Exchange Training (JCET) between the U.S. Southern Command, through the U.S. Embassy, and the Trinidad and Tobago Defense Force (TTDF) and Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) comes to an end, please be advised of increased military training activity from September 23 to 30.

On September 23 training will take place in the Long Circular and Queen’s Park Savannah areas; on September 26 -27 there will be maritime training in Westmoorings and Chaguaramas and on September 28-30 large military aircraft will land at the Piarco South terminal.

JCET is part of a series of engagements planned over the last year which provide opportunities for U.S. and TT elite units to work together, learn from each other, and strengthen relationships.  The training began on September 5.

JCETs are conducted annually with Trinidad and Tobago and similar training exercises are done with other countries in the region.
