Tony Estrada, SCC Sheriff, says the Sheriff’s Dept. provides numerous services to the community, including search & rescue. Estrada said the washes, desert and mountains can be dangerous at times. He says hikers and hunters get lost, children lost in the woods or hidden in landscape in the acres surrounding their homes, elderly people wander away from their homes, and victims of flash flooding are some of the scenarios that confront the SAR team. He says the team is comprised of volunteers who come from all walks of life and from across the community who dedicate their time, information, skills, equipment and compassion.
