Synopsis: This book is the first comprehensive guide to urban search. It compares factors of an urban/suburban incident with wilderness search, including preplanning, search management, special investigation considerations, use of resources, and documentation. The reader will learn how to understand the urban environment and develop preplans; conduct thorough investigations and interviewing; develop an accurate profile of the missing person using urban specific data; and train dogs and ground teams to be effective in the urban environment.
