A group of volunteers for the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department took their maiden voyage on the Mokelumne River on Tuesday morning. The Sheriff’s Team of Active Retired Seniors, or STARS, debuted its boating unit — a squad that will promote boating safety and serve as a neighborhood watch on the water. Five members of the unit, clad in orange vests and white shirts, climbed in a steel boat and navigated the backwaters of Lodi Lake shortly after 10 a.m.

“They will be our eyes and ears on the water,” said Deputy Les Garcia, a spokesman for the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department. “They are vital to the Sheriff’s office.”
