MRV Division

The Marine Recreational Division (MRV) of the Ontario County Sheriff's Office acts as a supplement to the regular road patrol function. Various components of the MRV are marine, snowmobile and ATV patrols. The Division is also responsible for providing support as needed to the Underwater Search and Recovery Team.

The MRV operates on a regular basis from June to September, with priority given to the regulation of Navigation Laws and boating safety on Canandaigua and Honeoye Lakes. To review the New York State Boater guide open the link  NYBOATERSGUIDE


During the winter months, members of the MRV patrol the trail system within Ontario County, respond to complaints involving snowmobiles and investigate and or assist in the investigation of snowmobile accidents. The MRV may also be called upon to assist a deputy, fire department or EMS agency with access to a person in need of assistance should the person be in an area that is not accessible by conventional vehicles.
