Background discussion & details on trailer above here.
There seem to be several trailers that move around to various locations on Whidbey- stay for a few weeks, then maybe move on. When the trailer above was last tagged by the Sheriff, it may have been at a different location.

Island county to purchase new patrol boat to help with Puget Sound security:
Federal grant money goes to “…gain a better grasp on cross border activity and to prevent illegal crossings.”
“Funding for the boat was issued through the Homeland Security Grant Program under Operation Stonegarden.”
If public meetings were held on Whidbey Island & people were asked to state their top law enforcement priorities- would a Homeland Security-funded patrol boat show up anywhere on the list?
If the Sheriff was interviewed & asked for his wish list- is there any possibility that it would include a Homeland Security-funded patrol boat?
Took a quick look on the web to see if there is a post 911 history of maritime “cross-border activity” on Whidbey & could not find anything. If anyone has info, please post in comments.
Let the Sheriff & the people he serves set funding priorities for the Island County Sheriff’s Department.
