U.S.-Canada Shiprider patrol on Detroit River

Shiprider program proves key to successful law enforcement on Great Lakes

“This is a great success for the Shiprider program, and it comes on the heels of an operation last month in which U.S. and Canadian law enforcement exercised the very same cross-border interdiction capabilities and authorities as used for this case,” said Capt. Scott Lemasters, commander of Coast Guard Sector Detroit. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the result.”
