The Wayne County Sheriff's Marine Unit is responsible for patrolling the waters in the County of Wayne, which includes Lake St. Clair, the Detroit River, Lake Erie and Belleville Lake.  This includes 38 miles of international border (140 sq. miles of water).

The Marine Unit is staffed with deputies specially trained in marine law enforcement, search and rescue, underwater search and recovery operations.  In rescue and recovery operations, divers may perform in limited or no visibility, cold water operations, ice and boat diving, river diving, various search patterns and many other areas of specialized police diving.  The Marine Unit also works with other law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal levels. 

A vital function of the Marine Unit is to conduct boating safety programs for residents of the county.  Instruction is provided at various public schools throughout the county as well as evening classes open to the general public.
