The Sheriff’s Office Dive Team is a group of specially trained deputies who respond to water related incidents. This can include missing person situations and times when evidence needs to be recovered.
For years Lincoln County has relied on outside agencies to provide this service within our county. The team was established July 2014 and training began in January of 2015. The team consists of 12 members who are certified divers. Our goal for the team is to have all divers certified in underwater crime scene investigators within the near future.
All the equipment was purchased with seized drug money from local drug dealers.
