Looks Like I'll Be Sleeping a Little Bit Safer Soon
The New York City Police Department just dropped a cool five million dollars on a 72-foot, high speed security boat that can hold upwards of 30 officers. The boat will be bulletproof and also feature an airtight cabin to protect policemen against airborne contaminants. A company in Somerset, Massachusetts is building the boat. Its main purpose will be to protect against potential maritime attacks like the one that happened in Mumbai in 2008, when 164 people lost their lives.
