At Lake Pleasant this week there was an annual event that takes place that not many people are aware of. On the water law enforcement training.

The on the water training started at 8 am on Wed and ran through 10 pm Thurs night. This is a program that is put together by AZ Game and Fish, Maricopa County Sheriff’s office and assistance from the Coast Guard Auxiliary. The Auxiliary had 7 boats underway with over 25 members participating. Also members of the various sheriffs offices across the state and country.

The Auxiliary boats are used as scenario boats, that means that each boat has a certain violation attached to it, such as missing life jackets, burned out navigation lights, etc.

This is an excellent inter agent training exercise that takes great planning to organize. The officers also paginate in high speed chase and live fire exercises using dummy rounds.

A lot of fun and a lot of training was had by all. This shows the great commonalty and support within our state
