The B.C.W.I.D. #1-LAKE PATROL consists of four TCOLE commissioned Peace Officers. The officers have the responsibilities and duties of keeping the lake and watershed safe from pollution, illegal activities, and maintaining the docks and navigational quality of Lake Brownwood. They patrol the waters of Lake Brownwood and all District owned properties. The officers are MSEO (Marine Safety Enforcement Officer) certified and Boater Education certified. They can enforce all laws of the State of Texas including the laws of the Texas Water Safety Act and many Fish & Game Laws, as well as the rules and regulations of the District. The Lake Patrol works closely with the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Texas Parks and Wildlife, TCEQ, City of Brownwood, Railroad Commission, and any other agency that requests our assistance. The Lake Patrol has jurisdiction over the watershed of Lake Brownwood which lies in five surrounding counties and covers more than 1500 square miles.
