The Sheriff's Marine Division patrols Lake St Clair, which has been called the busiest fresh water lake in the world, as well as it's connecting waterways. In order to provide the necessary patrol coverage on the water as well as teach thousands of people "Boating Safety" the Marine Reserve Unit was formed. This mission would not be possible without the help of the men and women of the Marine Safety Reserve Unit.
The Marine Reserve Officers go through an academy to learn basic police procedures and Macomb County Sheriff's protocols. They then complete a State approved Boaters Safety class. Additionally they are given hands on training in the operation and handling of the many different boats the Sheriff's Marine Division uses, fire fighting and rescue equipment, navigation training, radio procedures, as well as first aid, CPR and AED training.
