Recommended Action

Safe Communities
Reason for Recommended Action/Background
The Sheriff’s Boating Safety Program has been responsible for patrolling all waterways and conducting related search and rescue operations countywide since July 1973. The Boating Safety Section performs the vital function of insuring citizen safety along the recreational waterways located within Yolo County. This section is operational on a year round basis, but sees a dramatic increase in need for services during the summer months when boating season reaches its peak.  Having law enforcement presence on the recreational waterways drastically reduces the potential for fatal boating related accidents.  During the 2020-21 season, officers conducted 31 safety compliance checks and issued 6 citations and 69 warnings for unsafe and dangerous boating practices.  In addition, one (1) arrest was made for boating while under the influence of alcohol.  Other services performed include vessel assistance for disabled boats, three (3) search and rescue cases, and community outreach.  These services would be greatly reduced, if not canceled entirely, if yearly state operational grant funding was not procured.
 
Marine patrol operations are funded with state operational boating safety grant, local boat property tax revenue, Proposition 172 Public Safety Funds, and County General Fund monies. In December of 2021, the Sheriff’s Office will submit its application for financial aid to CDBW to help fund the Boat Patrol program. Accepting these funds will allow the Sheriff's Office to continue Boat Patrol operations throughout the 2022-23 fiscal year.  Because this agreement is between two government entities, Board of Supervisors approval is now requested.
Collaborations (including Board advisory groups and external partner agencies)
County Counsel has approved the attached agreement as to form.  The Grant Approval Committee has reviewed the Grant Approval Form for the Subvention Grant funding.
