MIDDLETOWN POLICE, THIRD BEACH HARBOR RECOGNIZED
MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (JANUARY 22, 2024) – The Middletown Police Department and Third Beach Harbor were recognized recently with an “Elite Fleet” award.
According to Marinas.com and Dockwa.com, the Police Department and its staff helped “set the bar high and provided top-tier experiences to your boaters” at the harbor, which is located at the end of Third Beach Road.
Specifically, Marinas.com and Dockwa.com singled out Harbormaster Jake Farrell, Capt. Jason Ryan and Lisa Sisson, administrative assistant to the chief of police, for their efforts.
“It is an honor to be recognized by Marinas.com and Dockwa.com,” Ryan said. “They represent thousands of marinas throughout the country and for them to recognize our harbor is an honor. Their software platform and app make booking transient moorings extremely easy for any boater.”
Ryan continued that Farrell’s excellent service to the boating community — and beyond — went a long way to help Middletown Police and Third Beach Harbor earn this recognition.
“Jake Farrell provides outstanding personal service to all of our boaters,” Ryan said. “His attention to detail and professionalism are on full display while performing the duties of harbormaster for the Town of Middletown. He is polite, courteous and quickly responds to the boaters needs, questions and concerns. He is a real asset to the boating community.”
As for Third Beach Harbor itself, Ryan said it’s a true asset and one of Middletown’s true hidden gems.
The water off the popular Middletown family beach has dozens of moorings available to rent seasonally by the local community. For those in the area for a night or two, there are also several moorings where boaters can rent a space.

“Third Beach Harbor is a very affordable stop over for boaters,” Ryan said. “It is extremely family friendly for any day tripper and it is strategically located as a stopover for anyone heading to the islands.”
Whenever in the area, Ryan asked all boaters to be aware of their environment and operate safely.
“While visiting Third Beach Harbor, to ensure everyone’s enjoyment, please abide by the rules,” Ryan said. “The entire mooring area is a no wake zone and boaters must stay clear of the swim area. There is no pump out or overboard discharge allowed. Also, while transiting to and from the beach please beach any dinghy to the south of the boat ramp.”
