IN AN EMERGENCY DIAL 9-1-1

Marine

The Sheriff’s Office Marine Patrol operates from the Sheriff’s Public Safety Building in Clarksville, NY. Currently the Sheriff’s Office has a fleet of two boats, a 25' Pro-Line Cruiser and a 17' Boston Whaler. The smaller of the two boats is mainly utilized on the smaller lakes in the hilltowns of Albany County and for emergency responses with the Dive Team.  The 25’ Pro-Line routinely patrols the Hudson River. The Sheriff’s Office partners with the State of New York in a grant program wherein 75% of the expenditures of the Marine Patrol are reimbursed. This creates a savings for the tax payers of Albany County and enables the Sheriff’s Office to provide these services.
