The CoCoSAR team consists of approximately 200 members. Each year we add new members who complete our fall training academy and may continue to add to their training and develop new skills and specialties.
During 2014, our dedicated volunteers logged over 45,000 hours of service training for and accomplishing the CoCoSAR mission.
The team responded to over 50 incidents including both in-county and out-of-county mutual-aid searches. Assistance was provided to 23 different city and county agencies. This included 11 cities and towns in Contra Costa County and 12 out-of-county agencies in northern California.
These missions included missing person searches, evidence and article searches, medical details and what we call “special details” that are unique events outside the traditional CoCoSAR mission scope. Our missions provided assistance to dozens of different police and public service agencies.
