Dive Team

Portland Police Divers conduct underwater search and recovery operations in Portland Harbor as well as nearby ponds and rivers.  Generally divers are called upon to search for and recover physical evidence such as weapons, stolen property and vehicles used during the commission of a crime; occasionally they search for bodies.  They typically operate under difficult conditions: cold water and low to zero visibility and must undergo intense training to meet the challenges of their assignment. The team recently consolidated with the South Portland Police Dive Team in order to share resources and improve response capabilities.
