Late 80's or early 90's Movie or TV Movie/Pilot about 2 cops on a tropical island

I don't remember a lot about this as i was quite young at the time, what i do remember is it was an action comedy about an american detective who does something that gets him sent to a tropical island (possibly US Virgin Islands) and he teams up with another cop who is Australian (possibly English but think Australian) I believe, they are both referred to as cowboys in both senses of the word. I'd say it was late 80's or early 90's.

It's possible that the Australian cop is black but i cant remember
Lets try "crime lords"
Just watch the trailer, definitely not Crime Lords.
I'd say this was more a buddy cop film, similar to lethal Weapon or Rush Hour.
I will keep digging. This is a suuuper tough one. The island thing is my problem so far, as so many odd pairing buddy cops exist, but nary a one on an island
it could possibly be somewhere like the Florida keys instead of an island, but i'm 90% sure it was an Island. i can vaguely remember a supportung character possibly the police chief saying something along the lines of ' great another cowboy, that's all we need' when the American arrives.
