Marine Patrol/Search & Rescue
Under the authority of the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office Field Operations Division the Sheriff maintains a year round Marine Patrol Search and Rescue. The primary mission of this section is to ensure and promote the safety of the boating public. The Boating/Safety Section also provides countywide search and rescue services for lost, stranded, and injured victims. Areas of operations include the Sacramento River, Cache Canyon, Putah Creek, and the mountains, slough, and flat lands of the county. In addition, deputies give demonstrations and provide boat care training to the general public throughout the surrounding area.
Sheriff Prieto thanks the State of California Department of Boating and Waterways for providing an on-going grant to make this section possible.
