  • WATER PATROL The Water Patrol Unit is responsible for handling law enforcement efforts on the waterways within the Parish. In addition to providing patrols in areas inaccessible to vehicular traffic the unit also is responsible for providing a law enforcement presence at events on the water. The unit is also responsible for enforcing state and local laws related to the vessels and responds to incidents involving water related accidents and drownings.
