Snowmobile Patrol is assigned to deputies that have proven proficiency on the machines in addition to specialized training in the statutory aspects of the operation, licensing, and registration of these vehicles.
This patrol normally operates on weekends and will occasionally work special events. Selective enforcement may be necessary based upon special requests or complaints received from citizens. Typically, deputies patrol the snowmobile trails and selected areas conducting inspections and compliance checks to ensure that operators adhere to state and local laws. The snowmobile patrol may be requested to assist at accident scenes and could at any time, be called out for search and rescue operations.
