SHERMAN, Texas -- The Grayson County Sheriff's Office wants to resurrect its dive team.

The county has been without a dive team since 2012  due to a lack of updated equipment. But the sheriff's office could be on its way to reinstating the resource if the department is approved for a grant.

"Due to our proximity to Lake Texoma and other large bodies of water in Grayson County and around Grayson County, we felt that this team was needed to help aid in criminal investigations and to recover items that may bring closure to the victims of crime," department spokeswoman Capt. Sarah Bigham said.

A decision on the dive team grant is expected in August or September.
