Model Policy on Search and Rescue

Publication Date: 2015
Abstract: The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services' (VA DCJS) Search and Rescue Model Policy is intended to serve as a structured template to assist law enforcement agencies that wish to adopt a comprehensive Search and Rescue policy. The DCJS Search and Rescue Model Policy additionally serves as a resource that identifies current best practices to those agencies with existing policies. The model policy was developed after researching best practice and reviewing the search and rescue policies from several localities in Virginia.
