Officer Schock, Thank you for being a Police Officer and doing what many would dare not. You are a HERO. The CPD has lost one of its best. You will never be forgotten. R.I.P. brother.

my condolences...any info on what he was breathing, depth, how far in training, etc?

as a police diver, this is never a headline you wish to hear. To do a job in generally zero visibility that few have the character or ability to do, when all you wish to do is to bring others loved ones home for them.... whatever went wrong, this is never a day in the office one wants and is a huge loss in generally small team of committed police/divers. so sad!
