Pacific County Sheriff’s Office Receives Gift From Cowlitz County
The Pacific County Sheriff’s Office have received a new addition to their fleet thanks to the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office
On January 24th, Sheriff Scott Johnson accepted the keys to a 20 foot jet boat given to the office by Cowlitz County Sheriff Mark Nelson. The boat was previously used in Cowlitz County as a multi-purpose patrol boat. Fully functional, the boat came with emergency equipment and will be used for various patrol and search and rescue missions within Pacific County. Officers were able to test out the boat during test drives on the Willapa.
Sheriff Scott Johnson thanked Sheriff Mark Nelson, his agency and the Cowlitz County Commissioners for their donation. Sheriff Johnson stated, “The addition of this vessel will obviously aid us with responding to incidents or emergencies only accessible by boat.”
Johnson added, “We have people on staff who are trained boat operators, and we plan to train more.”
