Sound Off

It was reported that the Jefferson County dive team recovered a body from Clinton Lake ("Fisherman's body found in Clinton Lake," Sept. 21). My question is: I thought Douglas County had its own underwater recovery team. I was curious why they weren't involved or why Jefferson County's team was called in?

Lt. Kari Wempe of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said most of the office's dive team was in training that day and only one Douglas County diver was available. The department's policies require at least two divers to be deployed at the same time.
