In 2014, with the immense cooperation and assistance of the residents in the Hampton Ponds area, the Westfield Police Department was able to acquire a boat to begin Westfield’s first Marine Patrol. The marine patrol can be seen on Hampton Ponds most weekends throughout the summer, as well as select days and evenings during the week. Since the institution of the Marine Patrol, illegal and dangerous marine activity is at an all-time low. Residents and visitors can enjoy a fun and safe family atmosphere when visiting Hampton Ponds State Park, or while enjoying time on the lake. And once again, our sincere thanks goes out to the residents of the Hampton Ponds area who helped to make our Marine Patrol possible.
