The Boston Police Harbor Unit, led by Harbormaster Sgt. Joseph Cheevers, patrols the harbor daily to ensure that both commercial and recreational use of the harbor and its islands is safe. The unit also enforces maritime codes and environmental regulations as they apply to these waters. The unit consists of members of the Boston Police who are also avid boaters. Officers assigned to the Harbor Unit are responsible for assisting various state and federal law enforcement agencies and regulatory authorities in the performance of their duties with the Harbor and are relied upon to provide emergency mutual aid to our neighboring towns. The Dive Team also has the responsibility for performing maritime search and rescue missions and is capable of specialized underwater search, rescue, and recovery operations.
