Marine Patrol

Public Safety Marine Patrol Unit

The Town of Little Elm Public Safety Marine Patrol Unit is staffed by a crew consisting of Town of Little Elm Police Officers and Firefighters. The Officers and Firefighters serving on the Unit receive specialized training and serve in the unit as an extra-duty assignment, when needed. The Marine Patrol Unit is most visible during the summer months and during special events on or around the lake.

Officers and Firefighters patrol the Lewisville Lake waterways on a boat and personal watercraft and they perform many safety functions, such as; conducting boat inspections, enforcing boating laws, monitoring marine vehicle operations, towing stranded boats back to the dock or ramp, watching for navigational problems, investigating accidents and assisting boaters when needed. In the event an accident does occur, the Marine Patrol Unit is there to render aid, investigate the accident and complete the required state reports.
