Boat Patrol


The Summit County Sheriff’s Office Boat Patrol Unit was established in response to the increasing amount of recreational activity on Dillon Reservoir and Green Mountain Reservoir. The primary responsibilities of the Boat Patrol Unit are education and enforcement. During summer months, Boat Patrol maintains a seven-days-per-week patrol on Lake Dillon.
