Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond is extremely proud of the Patrol boat that was acquired through Homeland Security.
This division is staffed full time with Sgt. Mark Williams and as needed with Corporal Matthew Purvis and Deputy Robert Lee.
All personnel assigned to this division attend a week long training program sponsored by the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency.
This boat is ready to respond to any of the ten (10) Homeland Security Counties when requested. The division also works hand in hand
with the TWRA by patrolling the water ways during holiday weekends and also responds to calls for assistance from surrounding counties.
You will also see the Sheriff’s Patrol Boat assisting at the yearly River Bend event dealing with boat traffic.
