Through a federal grant, the Becker County Sheriff’s Office was able to purchase an airboat, which will be used for rescue purposes. Because of the design of the bottom of the boat, it can be used on snow, ice or water. The sheriff’s deputies and Detroit Lakes Fire Department will train on the rescue boat together.
