Boating/Water Patrol

During boating season,deputies primarily patrol Fountain Lake, but respond to Albert Lea Lake and other area lakes and waterways in the county as needed.  Deputies patrol the water in a fully marked boat that is housed at a permanent dock space on Fountain Lake.  Deputies are responsible for promoting boating safety and ensuring compliance with state recreational laws.  Deputies also conduct watercraft crash investigations and have the capabilities to search for drowning victims, if needed.
