Rank: Sergeant Deputy/SERT Supervisor
What is your suggestion: Add Maritime to SERT as a sub divison and have Diving as a certificate withing the sub division.
Being on an Island it only makes sense to have a Maritime Sub Division within the Sheriff’s Office.
On top of that the trading of illegal firearms is a big issue and has become more abundant in this county
with most if not all illegal firearms coming from the surrounding islands of Erie County.
Another major issue is not having this team in place if there is ever a hostage situation on a boat or on an island.
This will also reduce the poaching of animals in the ocean. Im sure there are plenty more uses for maritime as well.
We have no way to combat these violent crimes in our current state.
Do you have any Forms or Pictures:
