Police Boat Decision Coming
Another law enforcement agency is likely to be on the water in the spring. The La Crosse police department will find out next month if the city council will agree to accepting an 80 thousand dollar grant to help buy and outfit a police patrol boat. Because it makes sense to have one when his department is responsible for 19 miles of waterways, says assistant police chief Rob Abraham
If the city council agrees to accept the patrol boat grant, the department will have to come up with 20 thousand dollars in a matching grant.
