No borders for joint crews to pursue maritime criminals

Law enforcement vessels manned by Canadian and American crews have been approved to pursue criminals over maritime borders between the countries.

Officials said Monday the measures are needed to crack down on criminal gangs taking advantage of each country’s separate jurisdiction and inability to continue hot pursuits over the border.

Sailors from the U.S. Coast Guard and RCMP officers made the joint announcement at the Canada-U.S. border in Surrey on Monday.
