"Just a note to say thank you for a really informative and useful day, it is many years ago since I attended

my first TCSR course and it is great to see such fabulous progress."

Ray Griffiths - Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team


"Thank you very much for the link to the app. I had a chance to look at it and it is an excellent way to frame the 2011 report in a way that is very straightforward and it’s easier to navigate. I think it is brilliant you three are working together to build a hub of knowledge and training on the topic of missing persons. You can’t knock experience, not to mention 110 years’ worth of it!

I really liked your points on initial response and It is something I will incorporate into my lesson for the student officers.

I also appreciated the information on Despondent people as the stats were new to me.

 I wanted to thank you for all your efforts, and for your work and the time you have given to your community. It is not often, people get to make such a positive impact on their communities. Hats off to you and your team."

Brendan Duff - Constable, Police College Police Service Northern Ireland


"Hello Centre for Search Research, Thank you for all you do. 

I've looked over some of your training material and would like to use the 1-20-searching-routes-at-night-10 content. Our unit has not had any formal night search training and I really like some of these slides. Thank you for making this available."

Mike Dove - Chair, CALSAR (California Search and Rescue)
