Thank you to WCVB Boston’s Channel 5 News for their follow-up coverage of the BPD Harbor Patrol Unit. After a successful move of the traditional Boston Fourth of July fireworks on the Esplanade to July 3rd, BPD Harbor Patrol officers were called out to assist occupants of a boat that hit rocks and began taking on water just off Castle Island in the storm that hit shortly after 10:30 PM on July 3, 2014. All eight occupants where safely rescued, but the BPD harbor master warned boaters of the importance of staying inside the channel in the harbor. For the full story, click on the link below:!8L9ug
