Morris County Park Police
The Morris County Park Police in cooperation with the Morris County Prosecutor's Office and Sheriff's Office has created the Morris County Police Search and Rescue Team; the first of its kind in New Jersey. The team consists of specially trained police officers who respond to lost and missing persons calls in Morris and surrounding counties. Included are several qualified search managers who are able to coordinate the efforts for a large scale search. A typical initial response from the team would be comprised of a search manager team, Sheriff's K-9 Unit, command post and ground searchers. More trained personnel are available when the search covers a large area or is of protracted duration. The team has been mobilized on numerous missions with considerable success and several park police officers are also trained as surface ice-rescuers.
Used for :
