LOCKPORT – Because of expected high demand, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office has started scheduling boater safety courses throughout the winter months.

Legislation enacted in September mandates that all people born after May 1, 1996, who operate a vessel are required to complete a New York State-approved boater safety course.

The next courses will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Nov. 18 and 20, in the Niagara County Public Safety Building, adjacent the Niagara County Jail, 5574 Niagara St. Extension. To reserve a seat or for more information, call Sgt. Ron Steen at 438-3346.
