The Marine Division is staffed by three full-time bay constables. It is tasked with patrolling Southold Town’s shoreline with the Long Island Sound and the Peconic Bay, along with its many inlets, harbors, and creeks.
This unit is equipped with three 26- to 27-foot patrol vessels that are manned year round and several smaller vessels for work within the smaller creeks and inlets. Among its responsibilities is the enforcement of the Navigational Law, Environmental Conservation Law, and Southold Town Codes, including shellfish, wetlands, boats and beaches. This division also provides marine search and rescue, beach patrol, and Homeland Security patrols.
