Ministry of Defence Police Boat Watch Scheme

The Ministry of Defence Marine Police run a Boatwatch scheme of which the idea is for club members to carry out observations on their boat during various times keeping a vigilant eye out for potential offenders of marine crime.

They are asked to notify the MDP Marine Unit when they start and again when they finish and never to challenge anyone and obviously never to carry out the task alone.

We recommend they carry some form of communication and are informed of contact numbers or radio channels to contact the marine unit for assistance and possible arrest of offenders.

Boatwatch has proven to be extremely effective against marine crime.

The leaflets below explain the scheme in full.

A registration form can also be downloaded below.
