This is a solid gold piece of reference material that should be in every search manager's primary library...a long awaited and much needed publication for the SAR community. --Robert "Skip"; Stoffel, Emergency Response International
A good tool to add to the search manager's tool box when facing the most difficult SAR there is: the job of searching for someone missing in the urban/suburban environment. This well put-together guide covers the practically endless possibilities in this complex environment. --Matt Scharper, California State SAR Coordinator, Governor's Office of Emergency Services, Law Enforcement Branch
I pre-purchased your book entitled Urban Search and I must let you know that this publication is outstanding. As I read the various chapters, much I knew, a lot I didn't. The authors have done a great job of organizing the information. Every law enforcement officer across the country should have this book in their personal library and another in their work toolbox. This really is an outstanding piece of work, congratulations. --Rick Toman
