    NEW YORK – A small-boat crew off Coast Guard Cutter Ridley performed the first patrol in Sandy Hook, N.J., waterways to assess damages and conduct law enforcement, Saturday.

    While performing the law enforcement patrol, the crew observed various hazards to navigation in Sandy Hook Bay and inlet, including a sunken vessel, floating debris and displaced aids to navigation buoys.

    "While we return the port to normal operations, it's also important to provide for the safety and security of our waterways and to deter anyone seeking to take advantage of this disaster and the people affected by it," said Capt. Gordon Loebl, commander Coast Guard Sector New York and captain of the Port for New York and New Jersey.

    Ridley, an 87-foot patrol boat homeported in Montauk, N.Y., was one of many Coast Guard cutters and personnel deployed to the New York and New Jersey waters following Hurricane Sandy to assist in harbor assessments, recovery efforts and law enforcement.
