The Wawasee Property Owner’s Association has donated a new patrol boat to the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department lake patrol program.

The boat is equipped with all the required emergency equipment and is a fully functioning law enforcement patrol vehicle. It will be stationed at Wawasee Lake, but has a boat trailer that can move it to another lake should an emergency arise.

The Sheriff’s Department says the donation was made possible by a generous discount and the continuing community support of one of this area’s premier marinas, Griffith Wawasee Mariana in Syracuse.

Kosciusko County Lake Deputies patrol during the summer recreational boating season with a strong focus on boater safety and education.
