Canada-U.S. Wrap Up Shiprider Joint Law Enforcement Patrol Along St. Marys River

From Canada News Centre:

From September 4-6, the RCMP’s maritime unit in Sault Ste Marie – Ontario  and the United States Coast Guard (USCG) station in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan conducted a joint law enforcement patrol along the St. Marys River.  This collaborative program is part of the Integrated Cross-Border Maritime Law Enforcement Operations (ICMLEO) known as Canada-U.S. Shiprider.

As a result of the three-day operations, several vessels were stopped and boarded by specially trained and designated members of the USCG and RCMP.

Cross-border crime is a two-way challenge that has implications for both Canadian and U.S. citizens.  Shiprider removes jurisdictional road blocks associated with an international border. It allows specially trained and cross designated Canadian and American law enforcement to work side by side while under the direct supervision of the host country officer.
