Underwater Recovery Team

In case of an Emergency dial 911


Sgt. D. Willis
Phone: (843) 856-2476



The Underwater Recovery Team (URT) will respond to any type of water related emergency on a twenty-four hour basis. Assignment to the URT is considered a collateral duty. The URT is supported by the Marine Patrol, and the K-9 team (who uses the cadaver dog in search for drowning victims). The URT is also supported by the Charleston County Rescue Squad. The URT employs a variety of equipment and procedures to search for submerged evidence (i.e. cars, guns, knives, tools, bodies, etc.). Divers carefully measure and triangulate underwater areas in order to reconstruct scenes for subsequent legal proceedings. They are also careful to document each dive to ensure diver safety and enhance courtroom testimony.
