Indiana Boating Law Enforcement

The boating laws of Indiana are enforced by the conservation officers of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, the U.S. Coast Guard officers, and any other authorized peace officer or law enforcement officer.

Officers have the authority to stop and board vessels in order to check for compliance with state and federal laws.

The U.S. Coast Guard also has enforcement authority on Waters of Concurrent Jurisdiction.
