WA Police to float new tactical vessels

WA Police has ordered two new vessels for its Tactical Response Group (TRG) to ensure continued capability to respond to high-risk maritime incidents, including situations where police are required to board a vessel at sea for law enforcement or counter-terrorism purposes. 

The two new ‘Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boat (RHIB)’ vessels will replace the existing RHIBs which are reaching the end of their operational life, with the older of the two already 15 years old. 

The new TRG vessels are a $1.3 million investment and are being built by local WA boat builder, Kirby Marine. They will expected to be delivered to the TRG next year.
