Police on Patrol for Drunk Boaters

(La Porte County, IN) - If you’re enjoying the open waters this weekend, expect to see Indiana Conservation Officers out patrolling.


They’ve launched Operation Dry Water to scope out intoxicated boaters.  Special drunk boating patrols are happening all weekend across the state. The La Porte County Sheriff’s Marine Patrol Division will also be participating locally.


Operating a vessel under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal on all bodies of water and can lead to serious injuries, death, and of course legal consequences.  In Indiana, it is illegal to operate a vessel with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher.  Indiana Conservation Officers remind boaters always to boat sober and to wear a life jacket when on or around the water.
