River Patrol

The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Police River Patrol consists of two officers assigned permanently to the unit during the boating season. The primary function of this unit is to patrol the Rock River, which runs through the center of the county. The river patrol will respond to any call for service on the river, as well as stranded boaters, river rescues, etc.

The unit has two boats that it uses on a regular basis. The main water craft is a 2013 Weldcraft. 

The River Patrol also has a 23-foot deck boat which is used primarily for routine river patrols and call response.
