CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- The Canadian ambassador to the U.S. is joining officials from both countries in South Carolina for a look at a joint maritime law enforcement effort.

The program, called Shiprider, is a joint project of the U.S. Coast Guard and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Law officers from both agencies work from the same vessels to enforce the law along waterways on the border.

Ambassador Gary Doer is joining U.S. Coast Guard Rear Adm. Peter Brown and others on Tuesday at the Coast Guard's Marine Law Enforcement Academy at the old Charleston Naval Base.

They will discuss the program and get a demonstration of how officers train for the Shiprider effort.
