Bryan County Emergency Services’ newly developed dive team recently assisted the Richmond Hill Police Department on an evidence recovery scene.

The Richmond Hill Police Department received some intelligence indicating that a piece of evidence linked to a case they were working on may have been disposed of in a body of water. With the help of the BCES dive team, the evidence was successfully recovered.

BCES Chief Freddy Howell and RHPD Chief Mitch Shores were happy to have their teams work together.

“This event was another joint collaboration of public-safety agencies working together for the common good of the citizens of Richmond Hill and Bryan County,” Howell said.
