Members from Coast Guard Station Eastport, ME, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Maritime Unit in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, conducted a joint law enforcement patrol along the St. Croix River on Aug. 26 and 27.
The patrol is part of the newly-approved Integrated Cross-Border Maritime Law Enforcement Operation, which strengthens maritime security in shared U.S. and Canadian waterways by allowing law enforcement officers to freely cross the border and jointly enforce laws and regulations.
These patrols, which Station Eastport hosted, are the first to be conducted in the 1st Coast Guard District.
