Marine Patrol Unit
The Sheriff's Office provides a Marine Patrol during peak times of the boating season on Lake Jackson, which borders the south side of Newton County. This patrol of Lake Jackson is a joint effort to ensure boater safety and is a partnership with Jasper County, Butts County, and the State Department Resources.

The Sheriff's Office currently utilizes one jet boat, two jet skis, and a flat bottom river boat to patrol the waterways in Newton County. Each watercraft is manned by certified deputies who have completed extensive training in Georgia boating laws and boater safety.

The Marine Patrol is able to respond to calls for service, assist stranded boaters, and ensure boater safety by enforcing Georgia's DUI laws on the waterways of Newton County.
