Marine Patrol Unit
Henrico Marine Patrol’s primary mission is Homeland Security, as it relates to the Port of Richmond, the James River Channel, and other critical maritime infrastructures in Henrico County. Additionally, Marine Patrol Officers ensure the safety of its citizens while on the waterways.
Throughout the year, Marine Patrol Officers enforce Virginia State DUI and Boating Safety Laws, interdict contraband, enforce speed limits in no wake zones, and assist disabled or stranded boaters. They offer rapid response to water related crimes, accidents, injuries, or hazards and may provide escorts for visiting ships such as the Godspeed pictured here.
