A Forensic Diver Tells His Story

Steven Day.jpg

Steven Day is a forensic diver with the Alameda County Sheriff's Office. He recovers evidence and people from the Bay Area’s waterways. He also happens to be a public school teacher.

"Unfortunately, people are lost in water. And you don't think about that until you're involved, either suffering a loss or doing the kind of work that we perform to recover lost ones. And I think the humanity of it is as old as we are. We want what belongs to us returned."
Steven Day

In this story, Day shares what brought him to diving and what it means to him.
