Aquarena Center at Texas State University-San Marcos will host 20 law enforcement public safety divers April 24 for a three-day Dive Rescue 1 workshop.
Dive Rescue 1 training will be conducted at Aquarena Center by Dive Rescue International from Fort Collins, Colo. Jim Andrews, chief of police of University Place, Wash., will head the training.
Dive rescue teams from Corpus Christi, Richmond, Flower Mound, Commerce and Travis County are attending the three-day workshop. The PSD divers will work together to develop their skills on evidence recovery, underwater search patterns and scene management.
For many years, the Texas State School of Criminal Justice hosted a highly successful Public Safety Diver Program. This Dive Rescue 1 Program brings back that popular and important law enforcement training. Dive Rescue 1 will be taught three times this summer with dive rescue teams attending from all over the state of Texas.
