Local police say they are ready to patrol the waterways of Lake St. Clair and the St. Clair River and its surrounding roadways during the bi-annual Jobbie Nooner this Friday, June 24th, 2016 at Gull Island, Michigan.
Jobbie Noober began back in 1974 when auto workers who called themselves “Jobbies”, took the last Friday in June off work to party at Gull Island.
The party now occurs twice a year on the last Friday in June and the second Saturday in September. Annually, Jobbie Nooner attracts over 10,000 boats and over 100,000 people.
The OPP, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canadian Coast Guard, Canada Border Services, and Windsor Police Service will join the United States Coastguard, United States Border Patrol and other law enforcement agencies to ensure the safety everyone.
Officers say they will be set up in the OPP mobile command unit at the Belle River Marina to deal with any incidents that arise.
Police say there will be officers on land as well to ensure no one leaving the area marinas after boating will be drinking and driving.
