These officers have received specialized training in boating laws, rules and regulations. The Boat Patrol works closely with the Sutton Fire Department, Massachusetts Environmental Police and the Douglas Dive Team.
The goal of the Boat Patrol is to provide a safe enviornment of the residents and visitors of the town's waterways. Officers on these patrols conduct inspections, investigations, render aid to disabled boats and inform boaters of basic boating practices.
