Hey folks, I am interested in hearing from anyone who has experience with Sheriff Dept based SAR teams. My County Dept has three dogs trained in human tracking and are the first ones called out in a lost person scenario. However there is no organized SAR team in the area. One of the Deputies and his canine partner were recently responsible for finding an elderly man lost in the woods, but they were acting alone without any other help. I have been thinking about taking a proposal to the Sheriff about an organized volunteer SAR team managed by the Sheriff's Dept. Sheriff based SAR teams are not very prevalent around here and I would like to hear some advice from some folks out West where this is more common.
