Sheriff’s Office Trains Civilians at Marine Academy | Law enforcement

“In the summer season, we are busy,” said Lt. Eric Westveer of the sheriff’s office. “Taking 15 guys off the road is not feasible due to call volumes, financially…so we are bringing in seasonal employees who will work on the boats during the summer, and in the winter they will give safety courses boaters and open days.
