    I am from Utah and I would love to become a Public Safety Diver. Does anyone have any ideas as of where to start. I know that it is ran by The Sheriffs Department.

    Hi Paul

    Try doing a search first, this question gets asked almost every week -- if you had a more specific question...

    Someone really should con Gary into writing an article on this that could be a "sticky" at the top of the forum.
    I think he's the best man for the job *nudge-nudge*:wink:

    A lot of Sheriff's offices have "reserve" deputies. Basically unpaid or "volunteers". Our sheriff's office uses these to supplement their rank and file. I would go to the sheriff's office with a resume and let them know what your experiance is and that you would like to become a reserve deputy.

    Just my .02

    Get ahold of the local team and the Sheriff's department and see what they require.

    Anytime they can add someone outside of a sport field into the ranks is a good thing.

    Here is their web site: http://www.slsheriff.org/html/org/sar/join2.html

    Good luck
