POLICE LAUNCH TWO NEW BOATS TO ASSIST IN RIVER PATROLS AND SAFETY ENFORCEMENT
The Akwesasne Mohawk Police Service is launching two new Rigid-Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIBS) this summer to improve their capacity to keep the rivers safe and secure. One boat was received by AMPS this week and has been officially launched; the second will arrive next week.
Both boats will provide the police service with an improved mode of transportation to quickly navigate to areas on the river where they’re needed.
Akwesasne has an abundance of water, which the community actively uses for fishing, recreation and leisure throughout the summer months.
The boats provide police with an increase in capacity to assist in keeping these waters safe and enjoyable, free from hazards and crime.
