U.S. Navy Sailors and Coast Guardsmen participated in a three-week combined maritime law enforcement operation with Ghanaian maritime forces as part of African Maritime Law Enforcement Partnership (AMLEP), which concluded April 11.

U.S. Coast Guard law enforcement detachment members and U.S. Navy Sailors aboard the joint, high-speed vessel USNS Spearhead (JHSV 1) talk about their experiences during the African Maritime Law Enforcement Partnership (AMLEP) program. AMLEP, the operational phase of Africa Partnership Station (APS), brings together U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, and respective Africa partner maritime forces to actively patrol that partner's territorial waters and economic exclusion zone with the goal of intercepting vessels that may have been involved in illicit activity. Spearhead, the U.S. Navy's first-in-class joint, high-speed vessel, is on its maiden deployment supporting APS in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations.
