Seneca Sheriff to bring back Marine Watch

Seneca County Sheriff Jack Stenberg announced today that he will bring back the Marine Watch Program in Seneca County. Individuals that live along Seneca and Cayuga Lakes as well as the canals that run through Seneca County, will act as the “eyes and ears” of the Sheriff Office when boating and other marine related incidences are reported to the 911 Emergency Dispatch Center. “This program was very successful in the past and it is time to bring it back to protect those who use our waterways in the county”, says Sheriff Stenberg. “The program worked because of the many dedicated individuals that volunteer to join the program.” Volunteers will be contacted to look for reported incidents on the water and in some cases may be ask to provide assistance until a deputy can respond to the scene.Those interested in volunteering for the Marine Watch Program can obtain a Marine Watch Program Registration form at http://www.co.seneca.ny.us/forms/Marine_Watch_Pro-Reg.doc, complete it and email it to wbrewer@co.seneca.ny.us or mail it to the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, Seneca County Law Enforcement Center, 6150 Route 96, Romulus, New York 14541, Att: Undersheriff Brewer.
