The Sheriff's office currently
operates five snowmobiles to regularly patrol the many miles of
snowmobile trails located in the unincorporated areas of McHenry
County and enforce laws regarding the operation of snowmobiles. The
snowmobiles are also used to reach some of the county's
inaccessible areas when responding to winter emergencies such as
injured skiers, snowmobile accidents and lost or injured hunters.
The deputies of the unit also instruct snowmobile safety courses
during the winter season.
