WHAT WE DO
As a Search and Rescue organization, we are called to perform four different types of searches: trail searches, open grid searches, closed grid searches, and evidence searches. Trail or grid searches for missing persons may occur anytime of day, any day of the year, in any weather condition. These often require a quick response by teams of trained and well-equipped searchers. Evidence searches involve a thorough examination of an area currently under investigation by law enforcement. MCSO SAR is known throughout the Pacific Northwest as an able and effective evidence searching team, often responsible for recovering critical evidence pieces.
