WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- More eyes will soon be out on the water. Law enforcement along the coast plan to ramp up patrols this summer.
In New Hanover County deputies will man two boats with a dedicated staff of four deputies and one lieutenant. Brunswick County deputies will also man two boats 12 hours a day using school resource officers who are out of school for the summer.
The increase in patrols could lead to more citations.
