For the past two years, Detective Personius has been a diver, as a Chaska Police representative, on the Carver County Sheriff’s Office Dive team. The dive team consists of over 20 members, most of whom are volunteers from the community and local fire departments.Detective Personius is one of about 10 divers on the team and the rest of the members serve different support roles. On December 1st , he was able to share his experiences and training with the Chaska Police Junior Explorers. The kids learned about what scuba diving is about and what functions the dive team serves. Junior Explorers were able to try on dive gear as well as learn about a remotely operated underwater vehicle and other gear used by divers.
