Boaters on Kosciusko County lakes say they feel harassed by DNR officers

People boating Indiana’s lakes have noticed an increase in the Department of Natural Resources patrols. However, the increase has also led to many boaters upset when they’re told why their being pulled over.

The Syracuse Lake Association said it received a lot of complaints of people being harassed on the lake by the DNR. The association decided to bring the DNR and State Representative Rebecca Kabachi to its annual association meeting on Saturday to address the issue.

Boaters at the meeting gave examples to why they felt they were being harassed. Many boaters said they thought they were pulled over for no reason at all. Boaters knew DNR officers are suppose to look for people drinking and driving a boat, but at the same time, have gone to far to find those breaking the law.
