Baltimore City Police Dive team was originally started by Darrell Dugans who began by diving on his own in the 1950s. It would eventually become official as a collateral duty in TAC, but due to a personal dispute sometime between 1984, and 1987 which would lead to the unit’s being shut down. 7 December 2005 Sgt. Kurt Roepcke of the Marine Unit was able to start the process of getting it back up and running. With help from Col. Scott Williams, and Sgt. George McClaskey; the team was fully equipped, and operational on 20 May 2006. Since its inception, it had always been a collateral duty assignment within TAC, until Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III, started allowing Sgt. Roepcke to use officers from outside TAC/SOS. The team would go on to become deputized by US Customs (now Homeland Security Investigations). The Team is also part of a statewide dive group, which when started a few years ago as MDOG (originally MSP, BPD and Baltimore County) but has since grown to now include the following two agencies Calvert County, PG County. 3626737282 e7b2f2d3bd b
