Law Enforcement

Purpose-Built, Professional Grade Law Enforcement Craft

Metal Shark is a leading designer and builder of custom, welded aluminum law enforcement vessels for state, local, and municipal law enforcement agencies, with a continually growing list of operators. With its in-house team of over 60 engineers and naval architects and nearly 2,000 total vessels delivered to date, Metal Shark offers law enforcement agencies a wide range of proven hulls and unmatched design expertise. Carefully considering the challenges of modern law enforcement missions, Metal Shark has developed a complete portfolio of next-generation patrol boats offering modern, mission-enhancing features, with each model based upon a globally proven hull design. The result is a professional-grade patrol boat that provides greater comfort, efficiency, and safety to law enforcement officers.

Not Just a Center Console, But a Command Center

Metal Shark understands that law enforcement officers spend the majority of their on-water patrols working between the console, helm seat, and the sides of the boat. That’s why we’ve given such careful attention to our console design. Our center console law enforcement models feature an oversized integrated hard top with drip rails to offer protection from the elements during long hours on the water. Full-height, three-panel tempered glass windshields and available canvas enclosures add extra protection to increase comfort and reduce fatigue. The helm and overhead electronics pod have been ergonomically optimized, with vessel controls, switches, and electronics placed for easy, intuitive operation. A large weather-tight in-dash storage compartment with 12-volt USB power supply allows for the storage and operation of laptops and printers. For LE use, the entire helm area features glare-resistant matte finish blackout coating to enhance helm visibility in low-light conditions. And most importantly, flat obstruction-free floors and wide walkways allow easy access all around the boat. When working alongside another boat, officers will appreciate the heavy-duty foam coaming pads and well-placed toe rails that make it easier to safely lean out of the vessel. When it comes to the proper design of law enforcement vessels, Metal Shark has done its homework – and it shows. 

Pilothouse Vessels: A Clear Advantage

Metal Shark’s Defiant-class pilothouse law enforcement vessels vessels provide officers a tactical advantage with the latest advancements in crew comfort, efficiency, operability, and safety. One example of Metal Shark’s innovation is our signature Pillarless Glass pilothouse. This design significantly improves helm visibility by reducing the dangerous blind spots common on the industry’s legacy pilothouse designs which feature small, framed windows. Pillarless glass technology, proven extensively on Metal Shark’s military and law enforcement patrol boats, increases visibility and awareness, especially while operating in traffic on crowded waterways, during night missions, or while operating in inclement weather.

Supporting Law Enforcement Agencies Every Step of the Way

Metal Shark continues to gain law enforcement customers by designing and building boats that help officers conduct their important work more comfortably, efficiently, and safely, with proven, durable aluminum construction for the longest possible vessel life. Metal Shark’s military-honed serialized manufacturing processes assure the construction of high quality vessels, rapidly, reliably and repeatedly, supported by a stock boats program which can reduce lead times to 30 days or less in some cases. Metal Shark further supports law enforcement and other first responder customers by providing outstanding customer service and technical support, keeping helping our law enforcement customers keep their boats on water and in service.
