Services Workers with the State Office of Emergency Services. The
unit has over 50 qualified members that are trained in search management
techniques, and conduct foot, equestrian and canine searches. The
canine teams are qualified in trailing, tracking, water and cadaver
Unit members are additionally trained in urban, suburban and rural
searches for missing persons. They are also available for evidence
and article searches and large animal rescue. The unit also plays
a regional mutual-aid role in assisting Search and Rescue efforts
with outside jurisdictions. The members are equipped to respond
24 hours a day 7 days a week to department needs.
The Sacramento Sheriff's Department is fortunate to have
this dedicated and skilled organization of volunteers working for
the safety of the community at large.
