Welcome to the

Coconino County Sheriff's

Search and Rescue Unit


The Coconino County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Unit is a volunteer arm of the Sheriff’s Office, involved in performing the Sheriff’s statutorily mandated function of conducting and coordinating search and rescue operations within the county.

Search and rescue operations are supervised by a sergeant and a deputy assigned as Search and Rescue Coordinators. The Unit is trained by the Sheriff’s Office to provide vital search and rescue services to the second-largest county in the nation, which encompasses approximately 18,600 square miles of diverse and often remote, rugged terrain, from the canyons and deserts of Sedona to the highest point in Arizona, Humphrey’s Peak, with an altitude of 12,633 feet, and the far northern regions of the state. We are primarily a remote area or wilderness team.
