Search & Rescue Dive Team


The La Paz County Dive/rescue Team consists of Regular, Reserve and Volunteer Sheriff’s Department members, possessing PADI or NAUI basic, advanced and open water dive certification. All divers are issued full dive gear, including all necessary breathing apparatus, wetsuit, dry suit and underwater communication devices.


                    


A specially equipped Dive Trailer carries all necessary equipment to ensure extended operations at the scene of the incident. Air compressor, generator, underwater metal detector, underwater video and side-scan sonar are carried on the trailer, along with extra air tanks and other vital equipment. Specialized dive equipment was purchased with funds from the Law Enforcement & Boating Safety Fund grant, administered by the Arizona State Parks Department.

Dive Support Trailer  

When watercraft is needed for support, the Dive team has access to the Sheriff’s Department pontoon boat and rescue boats, which can be brought to the scene for dive operations and support. Members of the Boating Safety Division also provide dive support and security through the use of Department Patrol Boats.
