Urban Search:Managing Missing Person Searches in the Urban Environment 
By Christopher S. Young and John Wehbring
This book is the first comprehensive guide to urban search. It compares factors of an urban/suburban incident with a wilderness search, including preplanning, search management, special investigation considerations, unique urban strategy and tactics, use of resources, and documentation.
You will learn how to:
  • Understand your urban environment - residential, retail, business, industrial and/or recreational - and develop preplans accordingly
  • Conduct thorough investigations and interviewing - including training search personnel in door-to-door canvassing
  • Develop an accurate profile of the missing person using the newest urban specific data
  • Use the investigation information and scenario analysis to prevent wasted effort on a non-search
  • Working advantageously with the media
  • Consider the missing person's use of public transportation
  • Train dogs and ground teams to be effective in the urban environment by identifying problems and safety hazards they may encounter
  • Manage and evaluate documentation and clue management
Pricing: $25.00 Plus Shipping & Handling • Washington State residents will be charged sales tax.
