River Patrol Division

The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office River Patrol Unit is responsible for assisting state Wildlife Officers and State Park Rangers in patrolling the scenic Lumber River throughout the county.

In doing so, specially trained deputies will make sure that residents that utilize the river for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, rafting, boating, fishing and more are doing so in a safe environment. Deputies will also make sure safety rules and regulations are being followed along the river to ensure everyone has fun.

Specially trained Deputies are also able to assist local first responders with rescue efforts upon request.
