New Search and Rescue Volunteers Sworn In

On March 21st, 2016, 6 new members of the Polk County Search and Rescue team were sworn in by Sheriff Mark Garton. During the past several weeks this group of new volunteers have completed over 65 hours of training in all facets of Search and Rescue operations and are now certified through the State of Oregon. “To have people volunteer their time and effort for the people of Polk County is just one reason this community is a great place to live and work. Our volunteers are an invaluable resource and I want to thank them for what they do and for the amount of character they display on a daily basis”, Sheriff Garton said.
