Mahnomen County Sheriff’s Office Encouraging Smart Choices Over Memorial Day Weekend

Mahnomen, MN — As we head into the busy Memorial Day weekend, the Mahnomen County Sheriff’s is reminding motorists and boaters to keep safety in mind and make smart decisions. Mahnomen County Sheriff Josh Guenther is encouraging people to get out and support the local resorts and restaurants, but they will be on patrol to make sure no one is overindulging or being unsafe.

The Mahnomen County Sheriff’s Office purchased a new boat last year, which Guenther says they use for patrols and safety checks.

Their boat is also equipped with state-of-the-art sonar equipment that would be the envy of any fisherman, but instead is used to help locate items underwater, such as drowning victims, missing vehicles, or potential boating hazards.
