A Busy Long Weekend For the Barrie Police Boat

Marine Unit Helping Fellow Boaters, But Laid No Charges Over Long Weekend

A busy long weekend had by many, including the Barrie Police Service Marine Unit… but at least their ticket writing hands had a rest. Police say they checked numerous boats for compliance over the long weekend with the help of the OPP, and say not a single infraction or charge was laid. Along with the vessel checks, the Marine Unit kept busy helping an overturned sail boat, towing a few disabled boats to safety, and plucking a few boaters out of the drink.
