The Johnson County Dive Team was presented a team and individual awards for their hard work and dedication to the people of Johnson and surrounding counties. The presentation was held at the Sheriff's Office on Friday, January 29. The dive team is designated as a 501c(3) non-profit organization and relies mainly on donations and fund-raisers to operate. The only public funds used for the dive team is a percentage of boat-registration fees in Johnson County which amounts to less than a thousand dollars per year. The dive team has been instrumental throughout Arkansas and have been requested to assist in Oklahoma and Missouri to dive for persons and property. The team as a whole was presented an Award of Excellence and individual members received a Certificate of Appreciation. "This volunteer organization is a vital part of our service to the people and we are blessed and fortunate to have them in our community". Any group, business or person wishing to make a tax-deductible donation to the dive team can contact any team member or the Sheriff's Office.
