Dive Team

Coconino County Sheriff's Office Dive Team

Unit Responsibilities



Our five-member Dive Team was formed in April 2007, through grant funding from the Law Enforcement Boating Safety Fund (LEBSF). The team currently is composed of officers from our Page Substation. The purpose for the Dive Team is to provide search and rescue water operations and recoveries in navigable waterways in Coconino County.

Training Requirements


Training consists of Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) certification, which is basic scuba instruction and proficiency, advanced dive certification, and search and rescue dive certifications.

Benefits & Services


Having our own dive team cuts down on costly resources, which previously had to be requested from other agencies and were dependent upon availability. The Coconino County Sheriff’s Dive Team will respond to any water-related mission in Coconino County and is available for requests from surrounding agencies, with approval from the sheriff.
