Lost Person Search Manager Training

Lost Person Search Manager Training

The team are often asked to assist in the final day of training for new Police LPSMs (Lost Person Search Managers), providing manpower for a large-scale exercise on Dartmoor.

Today four team members joined over 100 other volunteers from across the region, working alongside Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team – Ashburton, North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team, Devon and Cornwall 4×4, Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue USAR, National Police Air Service and the Police Drone Team. The exercise sent teams out onto the moor to search for missing people, giving the trainee LPSMs a feel for how the different resources work together. In typical Dartmoor conditions, this was a great example of multi-agency cooperation and we look forward to working with the new LPSMs in the future.
