    As our team evaluates all aspects of our operations and training, I would greatly appreciate receiving copies of any team's SOP's for review. If you have electronic copies, please send them in a private e-mail or if others are interested, share them on the site.

    I thank you in advance.

    Boater Dan,

    I could probably contribute to the cause. Let me get an electronic copy of the team SOPs and I'll send them asap.

    Me to but get ahold of Seattle's team. They have, or at least used to have a good strict one. They have a real wide varity of conditions they have to work in. Kind of like what all of us have combined.

    I need to redo ours as well and would like to see what anyone would have to offer. Please pm.

    I think that this generic one from LGS would be a good starting point but will look to more input from the more experienced PSD's on here. What do you guys think of it?

    thanks

    Try this link for e-mailing them. There was a big mess with Seattle PD and the Fire Department that I think is settled. King county should be OK.

    Good luck and try to keep your SOP simple as possible. Getting to detailed could mean trouble as could being to simple.

    I've heard quite a bit of discussion on the legal ramifications of “SOP” with standard operating guidelines or recommended operating procedures leaving a little more breathing room when up against a legal wall.

    We're in the process of revamping ours, including a name change...

    The only SOG we have is for "Drownings" and is quite basic:
    On the other hand our P&I (Procedure and Instruction) for Dive Team ops, though general, is probably more like what you're looking for?
