Police Dive Team

The Ocean Shores Police Dive Team is a component of the Surf Rescue Team. In 2005 the Ocean Shores Police Department realized a need for a specially trained team of individuals to conduct underwater rescues and recoveries on short notice. These individuals would be capable of responding to any of the 26 miles of interconnected waterways and lakes within Ocean Shores as well as assisting other jurisdictions in and about Grays Harbor.

The current team consists of five certified divers. Team leader Deputy Chief Russ Fitts heads the team consisting of Surf Rescue Team members Sgt. Paul Luck, Officers Eric Cochran and Kyle Watson and Ocean Shores Firefighter/Paramedic Curt Begley.

The Dive Team currently is totally funded through community donations. Public donations allowed for the purchase of basic dive equipment for all of the members. The Dive Team is still in the process of obtaining specialized equipment and gladly accepts any donations.
