Finance Board Approves $350,000 for New Police Boat

By James Lomuscio

The Westport Board of Finance tonight unanimously approved $350,000 for the purchase of a new and improved Marine 1, a 33-foot, police boat to replace a 15-year-old smaller one long past its prime.

Police Chief Dale Call, citing 400 marine calls per year and the need for his officers to have “the best equipment to do the job” year round in a coastal community, stressed that the purchase was long overdue for the safety of his officers, as well as boaters who need assistance.

“We’re at the point now where we can no longer wait,” Call said, noting that the boat needs to be in service 365 days a year, 24-hours a day.

The new boat, he said, would have a long lasting aluminum hull and three sealed compartments that would prevent it from sinking.
