The Sabine Parish Sheriff Dive Team will be training starting tomorrow morning, Wednesday, March 15, 2023, on Toledo Bend Lake.
The team is composed of Tactical Narcotic Team Agents, Patrol Deputies, and Detectives of the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office.
The Sheriff Mobile Command Center will be set up on the south side of the Pendleton Bridge, and divers will be training in different areas of the lake this week.
Local fire districts and their dive team members will also be training on the lake.
Sheriff Aaron Mitchell said this training is needed to keep divers prepared for unfortunate events that could occur on Toledo Bend Lake. The team could also be called out to recover evidence from the lake in a criminal investigation if needed.
Do not be alarmed if you see law enforcement vehicles, vessels, and divers on the lake this week.
