The mission of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Marine Enforcement Detail is to provide a safe boating environment for the citizens and boating community of Sacramento County. To accomplish this mission, we provide education and information to members of the boating community, enforce State and local ordinance to ensure safe boat operations, and train and prepare for emergency response in case of a boat accident or natural disaster.

The Marine Enforcement Detail is responsible for patrolling the river and Delta regions within Sacramento County. The patrol area ranges from the Sacramento River north of Downtown Sacramento to the Delta/San Joaquin River. The Marine Enforcement Detail is permanently staffed 365 days a year with highly trained Marine Enforcement Deputies.

To request a vessel inspection for the purposes of mooring or anchoring in any Sacramento County waterway please visit the Mooring Permit page.

The Vessel Turn-In Program (VTIP)
The Vessel Turn-In Program (VTIP) is a program created to help boat owners surrender their unwanted recreational boats to a local participating VTIP agency, free of charge. For more information, please visit the State of California Department of Boating and Waterway’s website here.
