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.
