Police Training at NDAC

Sgt Lorna Dennison WilkinsSgt Lorna Dennison-Wilkins has been reporting on her recent training at the National Diving and Activity Centre.

Today has been interesting. We did our dive drills and each dived to just under 18 meters. It’s important that we practice working as a team and also dive to depth. Lots of police diving is less than 10 meters in grotty ponds and rivers so we have to make sure we can dive deeper if the need arises both in a physiological and operational sense. We have got a plan of what we need to achieve each day and once we achieve our targets we move onto the next task.
