Marine Patrol
The Marine Patrol regularly patrols the local waterways, working with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the United States Coast Guard, providing harbor enforcement and providing an extra layer of security for Savannah’s busy port. Last year, the Marine Unit conducted more than 100 joint operations with the Coast Guard.

Accordingly, the Marine Patrol investigates waterway and marine-related accidents and/or crimes. The unit also enforces all the safe-boating laws of the State of Georgia in the 632 square miles of waterways in the Metro Police jurisdictional area.  

In addition, the boats the unit utilizes provide a diving platform for the Underwater Search and Recovery Unit (Dive Team), particularly involving boating accidents and the recovery of water-borne accident victims.
