From Jerry Anderson:
Spoke with Assistant Chief of Police Jarrod Hart concerning the use of Oakland County Marine Division to patrol the lake. 2015 will be the 3rd year of a 3 year contract. The city has budgeted $5,800.00 for the season. The city allows the marine officers the discretion to patrol or not based on weather, amount of boat traffic or special events to maximize the use of our dollars. The officers are equipped with radios that can be reached by dispatch if needed. A dive team is also available. He feels that the patrols have been effective in educating boaters on proper use of the lake with a emphasis on personal water craft. Please contact Chief Hart at email@example.com if you have other concerns or questions.
