The Underwater Explorer
Chris Killey, Detective, Washington County Sherif’s Department
Abstract: The underwater world is one of the few remaining places that each of us can be an explorer. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but to personally experience the wonder that is the underwater world is truly awesome! If you’re ready to explore, come join us! We’ll make sure you have plenty of fun and excitement along the way!
About the speaker: Chris Killey is a Detective at the Washington County Sherif’s Department, a Canine Handler and a Licensed SCUBA diver and instructor. Chris became fascinated with the underwater world a teenager. He completed his first Open Water SCUBA course at the Racine Quarry. “It was cold blustery day. There was snow on the ground but the water was still open. I was hooked! That began what would eventually turn into a lifelong thirst for the next diving challenge.”
Chris was later able to merge his desire to SCUBA dive with his full time job in Law Enforcement and became a Public Safety Diver in 2003. Since then, he has continued his diving education, instructs and travels the world for “the next diving challenge”.
