Contract supplier for Olympic Games and G8 Summit.
Police Boat Hire Services
CRC are the only UK charter company to have 'ACPO Police Code' coded vessels on fleet, equipped, certified and ready to go.
We supply UK and Foreign Police forces with Ribs for a variety of operational requirements ranging from support for one off events to long term contract hire. CRC supplied 40 Ribs to the Dorset Police Authority for the 2012 Olympic Games. The contract included the long term charter of a cabin Rib; 16 Ribs for use as firearms boats and 23 patrol Ribs. CRC supplied 24 Ribs to the Police Service of Northern Ireland for the G8 summit in 2013.
“We would like to congratulate you on your excellent management of the detail and complexity during the extensive preparations leading up the 2012 Games, and your flawless delivery during the Olympic Games themselves. Keeping so many boats on full operational duty, many with 24 hour availability with a near 100% service level is a full testament to every aspect of your operation. Well done indeed.”
