The 27-foot Walk Around Cabin fast-response and security boats will join the port’s Joint Task Force 7, founded as a counterterrorism force to protect vital infrastructure and commerce of the port and surrounding areas of the Mississippi River.
The boats were purchased through a Federal Emergency Management Agency Port Security Grant.
