Louisiana waterways and other waters around and in the United States are rather vast. It would be very difficult to police those areas without a special law enforcement unit. The main law enforcement for maritime law is the U.S. Coast Guard. According to the USCG website, it is responsible for enforcing all maritime laws and handling any issues on the waterways of the United States. This responsibility is rather large because it includes everything from ensuring safety on the water to stopping contraband from coming into the country.
