A Sea-Doo personal watercraft has been loaned to the Police Department's Marine Division for the 2013 boating season by GSS Powersports of East Haven.

"The vessel is being provided for a six-month period at no cost to the town while we evaluate its effectiveness in our waters," said Capt. Sam Arciola in a news release.

"The vessel will be used by our marine officers for shellfish enforcement and vessel speed limit violations at Cockenoe Island and on the Saugatuck River," he said.
