Clinton Police launch new Marine Patrol vessel

CLINTON, Conn. (WTNH) - The Clinton Police Department's new Marine Patrol vessel will be hitting the water soon.

On Monday, Clinton Police launched their new vessel. It is a refurbished Coast Guard Defender class vessel that was made to expand the capabilities of the previous Marine Patrol vessel.

Over the next few weeks, members of the Clinton Police Department will be trained in safe operations of the vessels in many different conditions.

It is very important that marine operators are skilled and have checked for safe and proper operations before full service of the Marine Unit can begin.

The vessel will be out on the water soon, ensuring boat safety in Clinton waters and the Long Island Sound.
