WESTPORT, Conn. --The Westport Police Department celebrated the arrival of its new marine vessel on Tuesday.

The new vessel, Marine 1, is an all season 10 meter NAIAD Marine Patrol Vessel. The former Marine 1 was retired in 2012 after more than 14 years of service due to mechanical and safety issues. Since then, police and town personnel have worked diligently to acquire the new vessel.

"The new vessel is critical to our Marine Patrol Division, giving us a boat that's in the water 365 days a year," said Westport Police Chief Foti Koskinas. "I would like to thank the surrounding towns of Norwalk and Fairfield who assisted us with mutual aid these past few years while our boat was being built."

The vessel was driven from Rhode Island to Westport by the Westport Marine Division officers.
