Marine Enforcement Unit
The Marine Enforcement Unit (MEU) provides enforcement at Lake Nacimiento and Lake Lopez, working closely with rangers from both San Luis Obispo and Monterey counties. With a focus on education and boating safety, deputies contact dozens of boaters each day they patrol the county lakes. In addition to local lakes, the coastline of San Luis Obispo County extends south from Big Sur to the Santa Maria River, just north of Point Sal. The MEU is equipped to provide consistent enforcement patrols in the waters off of San Luis Obispo County.
