Volunteer Water Patrol Opportunity

Wright County Sheriff's Volunteer Water Patrol is looking for volunteers for and on Lake Charlotte.
The Wright County Sheriff's Volunteer Water Patrol would consist of our residents on the lake who have an interest in assisting their Lake
 Association and the Wright County Sheriff's Water Patrol Division to monitor the recreational traffic on Lake Charlotte and help ensure the safety and enjoyment for everyone using the lake.
The Volunteer Water Patrol members are the "eyes and ears" to provide information to the Sheriff's Office on any illegal or dangerous activity
that takes place.
They provide visible patrol, helping to eliminate potential problems that might otherwise have occurred.
The volunteers also provide the Sheriff's deputies with access to the lake during emergencies and assist the deputy by providing the use of their boats to respond to the emergency call.
There are currently about 70 active members on the Wright County Sheriff's Volunteer Water Patrol.  New members are usually recruited by their local lake associations and may be appointed pending criminal history and license checks.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer member of the water patrol, for Lake Charlotte, contact the lake association.
For more information, contact: Deputy Joe Mackereth, with the Wright County Sheriff's Office (Recreational Division) at (763) 682-7689.
