The Mahoning County Sheriff Department’s Berlin Lake Marine Patrol received $20,146 through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Marine Patrol Assistance Grant program.

The patrol was one of 24 grants, totalling $574,711, distributed this year by ODNR’s Division of Watercraft to help local law enforcement agencies provide emergency response to boating-related incidents, conduct routine waterway patrols and purchase safety equipment for use on marine patrol vessels.

In 2012, Ohio had a record 435,310 registered recreational watercraft, ranking ninth nationally. The number of registered canoes and kayaks has more than doubled since 2001 and now represents 1 of 4

watercraft registered in Ohio.
