AP police and U.S. Coast guard strengthen partnership

The Aransas Pass City Council, at the June 11 meeting, approved a memorandum of understanding with the Aransas Pass Police Department and the United States Coast Guard for joint maritime law enforcement activities. APPD provides on-water emergency response for law enforcement and public safety. Assistance is often required from the U.S. Coast Guard. Police Chief Eric Blanchard said it is important to have a strong working relationship with the Coast Guard, and this MOU is a step in that direction.
