Office of the Albany County



The Sheriff’s Office Marine Patrol operates from the Sheriff’s Public Safety Building in Clarksville, NY. Currently the Sheriff’s Office has a fleet of three boats, a 26’ Wellcraft Center Console, 25' Pro-Line Cruiser and a 17' Boston Whaler. The smallest of the three boats is mainly utilized on the smaller lakes in the hill towns of Albany County and for emergency responses with the Dive Team.  The 25’ Pro-Line routinely patrols the Hudson River from the south end of the river in Coeymans while the 26’ Wellcraft is utilized for special details and remains in Albany for rapid response to emergencies on the North end of the River. The Sheriff’s Office partners with the State of New York in a grant program wherein 75% of the expenditures of the Marine Patrol are reimbursed. This creates a savings for the tax payers of Albany County and enables the Sheriff’s Office to provide these services.
