About the Author

Mark Lonsdale is the Training Director for the Specialized Tactical Training Unit, a former deep saturation diver, and the author of several books related to diving and special operations. His responsibilities at STTU encompass most aspects of law enforcement and military special operations training, including program development and training of dive teams, primarily in the areas of search & recovery, dignitary protection, narcotics interdiction and maritime operations.

In addition, for the past fourteen years Mark has served as a diver, diving supervisor and Training Officer for the LA Sheriff's SEB Marine Company Dive Team, the reserve component of the Emergency Services Detail (ESD). He is also a member of the Sheriff’s Diving Control Board, and a co-author of the Sheriff’s Diving Guidelines, and has received numerous letters of commendation for hazardous operations. Mark has assisted the US military with other hazardous operations, both diving and non-diving. Before entering the military, Mark was a member of the national judo team and had worked as a civil marine construction diver, and then after as a deep saturation diver in the North Sea where he racked up several thousand hours at depths down to 500 fsw. Since the tragic events of 9-11, Mark has been actively involved in the training of US military and coalition special forces for deployment in support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. His Sheriff’s dive team has also been involved in Homeland Security focused on shipping and port facility security and underwater search operations.
