The members of the Fairfield Police Dive Team would like to send their best wishes to our instructor and friend Officer Kyle Keenan, who has moved on to another career in law enforcement. Without Officer Keenan's vision and energy this dive team may not be in existence today. He will be missed. Best of Luck!!!
