Police Command The High Seas As Part Of COVID-19 Training Exercise On St. Croix
CHRISTIANSTED — Virgin Islands Police Department officers hit the water near Green Cay to hone some of their marine tactical abilities.
A Joint Marine Training Unit Session was conducted recently with the VIPD, the Department of Planning and Natural Resources Marine Division and the U.S. Coast Guard all participating on St. Croix.
Assistant Police Commissioner Mario Brooks learned first hand from VIPD Commander Lt. Herman Lynch some of the skills required of law enforcement officers on the high seas.
The VIPD Marine Training partnership also included National Park Service law enforcement officers, police said.
The National Park Service-VIPD Joint patrols are a “vital part” of Governor Albert Bryan’s mandate on flattening the COVID-19 curve,” according to the VIPD.
“VIPD appreciates the support of our federal partners,” police said on Twitter.
