On the Waterfront

Posted by Daniel on Jan 5, 2012

Fans of the television show The Wire (and I am one) will know that at the end of the first season homicide detective Jimmy McNulty is busted down to the marine unit of the Baltimore police to spend his days trolling the riverfront in a battered old police boat. We are led to believe that it is the police equivalent of being put out to pasture, at least in Baltimore.

Not so in Vancouver however, where our own police marine unit is being celebrated at the Vancouver Maritime Museum with an exhibit titled A Century of Service, 1911-2011. You can check it out until February 19.
