Bainbridge Island Police Boat Practices Touch and Goes

Bainbridge Island Police Boat (Marine 8) practiced touch and goes with WSF Tacoma on February 8, 2016. The boat had smooth approaches and held station on the ferry stern where personnel transfers could have been conducted. And no, the BIPD will not run Marine 8 to catch a ferry if you miss the scheduled WSF sailing.
