CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- The Rockland County Sheriff's Department's Digital Open House for July will feature the Sheriff's Marine Unit.
As previously reported, the Sheriff's Office's Facebook page offers background on how a different division or unit works each month.
The full service navigational safety and enforcement unit utilizes a 24-foot Boston Whaler and a 28-foot MetalCraft Kingfisher in its patrols of Rockland County's 33-mile water boundary.
The unit provides navigation law enforcement, as well as safety, rescue and ecological services. It works with all emergency services and environmental agencies.
In conjunction with U.S. Coast Guard and the governor’s Hudson River Estuary Law Enforcement Task Force, the Marine Unit provides security for the Bear Mountain Bridge, Tappan Zee Bridge and Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant.
The unit also provides Homeland Security functions and jointly works with the Coast Guard, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, state Department of Environmental Conservation and regional police departments.
