About Beach Patrol
The Beach Patrol Division works 7 days per week, 365 days a year. Our officers act as Ambassadors to our visitors, as well as to our citizens. They are not only there to monitor the beach ends, but also to assist our locals and visitors in retrieving lost items, finding their car, and to answer any question an individual might have.
Our officers are in constant contact with the Police Department, so be assured if there's a medical emergency on the beach, the Beach Patrol Officer has the capability of reporting it immediately for rapid response time. Continual patrolling also allows the officers to always be aware of the beach surroundings. Their presence is a crime prevention deterrent.
The public is in constant contact with all sorts of wildlife such as pelicans, terns, sea gulls, sea turtles, and manatees. In some cases, rescuing injured wildlife becomes an essential function of a Beach Patrol Specialists job. Events like the removal of hooks from these creatures and transporting them to the Conservancy of Southwest Florida happens on a regular basis.
