So how much will this new police boat cost? Will the police be trained in rescue, etc, or will we have another repeat of the Raymond Zack incident where a mentally disturbed man drowned in chest-high water at Crown Beach because Alameda firefighters were "not trained" in rescue??

Hey 10dB: Boat will cost around $203,000, covered by grants. Not sure about the training (fire went through pretty extensive training after the Zack incident but memory escapes me on PD). Here's the staff report and contract: https://alameda.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=2260031&GUID=D583...
