With two officers and 20 crew members, the non-profit organization, Lawson’s Pride of Somers Point will benefit the crew, officers, and their family members by providing funds for Family Readiness programs with particular attention to health and welfare during emergency situations and tragedies.

This volunteer organization is comprised of a mix of veterans and residents who are committed to helping the Lawrence Lawson’s officers and crew in any way they can.

Those who have toured the boat say that meeting the officers and the crew of the newly commissioned ship adds a personal touch, knowing that this non-profit organization will be working to support to them and their families that give so much!

The Lawrence Lawson cutter ship is presently docked at the Cape May Harbor Base and was commissioned on March 18, 2017. It's recognized as the 20th Sentinel Class Fast Response Cutter supplied to the United States Coast Guard. The vessel will provide aid to search and rescue missions, as well as law enforcement tasks related to drug interdiction and immigration laws.
