While patrolling the North Shore, Rogers and Plank received a call that a vessel was taking on water out on the harbor. They quickly sprang into action to secure the vessel, saving all passengers onboard, towing the vessel back to shore and ensuring no one was injured in the process. Had it not been for the swift actions of these two Bay Constables, this situation could’ve ended very differently. Saladino proudly commended Plank and Rogers for demonstrating an ability to act quickly and skillfully when fellow citizens are in need.
