2019 River Hawk – 20’ Paragon, patrol boat

On Wednesday, October 24, 2018, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s Colorado River Station took possession of its new 2019 River Hawk – 20’ Paragon, patrol boat.  This new boat replaces an unusable patrol boat originally purchased in 2000.

The Colorado River Station patrols approximately 60 miles of the Colorado River along the California/ Arizona border, from Imperial County in the south, up to San Bernardino County in the north.  Personnel from the station conduct high-visibility river patrols and search and rescue operations along this stretch of the river.   

The 2019 River Hawk – 20’ Paragon, patrol boat is constructed of aluminum to handle the rigors of the Colorado River and a front windshield for better visibility for personnel.  This state of the art boat is equipped with items that will increase efficiencies in conducting operations along the Colorado River.  It is equipped with computers that will aid in the identification and background checks of individuals.  LED lighting will aid in nighttime patrols and operations.  It is also equipped with GPS/Sonar technology that will aid in underwater search and rescues/recoveries.

The Colorado River Station is excited to utilize this new vessel to better serve the residents of Riverside County along the Colorado River.   Anyone with questions regarding this boat is encouraged to contact Sergeant Pollitt at (760) 921-7900.
