tracking efforts
Tracking Efforts
  • Federal Government reauthorizes the Recreational Boating Safety (RBS) Program
    • The USCG justifies and secures funding for the Recreational Boating Safety (RBS) Program every 5 years
    • RBS Program Dollars are managed by the USCG
tracking efforts4
Tracking Efforts
  • States apply to USCG for RBS Program dollars each year
    • Since 2005, States required to submit Performance Report Part II prior to approval of their RBS grant application
    • This report captures specific activity used to measure States performance and to justify reauthorization of future RBS funds
    • Ohio’s Performance Report did not fully capture the activities of its Marine Patrols
tracking efforts5
Tracking Efforts
  • RBS Program Grant + Registration/Titling Fees + % of State Motor Fuel Tax = Primary Sources of DOW Revenue
  • Marine Patrols apply to DOW for assistance
    • Available assistance is determined by total Revenue
tracking efforts6
Tracking Efforts
  • The revised Year-End Activity Report will capture information needed for the Performance Report
    • Set-up as a fill-in form in MS Word
  • Accuracy is important:
    • Reauthorization of RBS Program dollars is achieved by justifying need for the funding
      • The combined activities of all the States and their subsidiary programs provide justification
    • Level of assistance provided through the Marine Patrol Assistance Grant Program is determined in part by your performance
today s agenda
Today’s Agenda
  • Review revisions to the Year-End Activity Report and Guidelines
  • Review the available tools
  • Review the new deadline for the Year-End Activity Report
  • Questions along the way
  • Electronic Polling – National Survey

Year-End Activity Report

A. OPERATIONS

1. Marine Patrol Operation Dates: Marine patrol program starting and ending dates.

2. Boat Patrol/Vessel Safety Inspection Dates: Starting and ending date of boat patrols and/or courtesy vessel safety inspections.

year end activity report9
Year-End Activity Report

B. EQUIPMENT

Boat Log Hours: Total hours a patrol boat was under operation for marine patrol activities. One way to determine this is to track engine hours at the beginning and end of the patrol season. Record the total hours each engine was operated as applicable. For example, if at the beginning of the patrol season the engine hours were 150.7, and, at the end of the season this figure was 275.2, the total engine hours (total hours boat operated) is 275.2-150.7 = 124.5 hours.

Year-End Activity Report

C. PROGRAM HOURS

NOTE: Hours reported only count toward one category. Do not duplicate or overlap hours from one category to the next. For example, Boat Patrol Hours may not double as Education Program Hours or vice versa. Another example, Investigation Hours may not double as Land Patrol Hours or vice versa.

Boat Patrol Hours: Total hours that officers were on a patrol boat and actively engaged in one or more of these activities: enforcing watercraft laws, conducting stops, assisting boaters, conducting search and rescue (SARS) operations, towing disabled boats, responding to boating emergencies, and handling boater complaints. In the event of a two-officer patrol unit, total the hours for each officer. For example, if two officers are on boat patrol for four hours, the total Boat Patrol Hours for that shift would be eight hours.
