Marine Patrol Unit



One part-time and two full–time operators serve as the Islamorada Marine Unit. Pictured from right to left are Lieutenant Derek Paul, Deputy Martin Digrius and Deputy Nelson Sanchez. The Marine Unit is responsible for approximately 50 miles of shoreline and the miles of inland canals within the Village. The Marine Unit operates with a philosophy that promoting compliance and boating safety through education is superior to harsh enforcement; however, the unit is charged with enforcing nautical laws and village ordinances and does so rigorously when appropriate. The unit works closely with residents, organizations and neighborhood associations to preserve near shore water environmental resources and improve boater safety.
