The patrols resulted in 22 arrests for drunken 171 tickets for safety and registration violations and 486 warnings. police stopped 660 boaters suspect- of breaking laws. This week marine police said SWAMP and the publicity it generated were the greatest factors in reducing state boating fatalities by 39 percent this year.

Franklin I. who directed the program. SWAMP was probably the greatest factor in the reduction of fatalities in Wood said.
