The Schaumburg Police Department announced today they will be conducting a Search and Rescue Unit training exercise, and mock missing person scenario in the area of the Schaumburg Boomer’s Stadium and METRA Commuter parking lots, 1999/2000 South Springinsguth Road. The exercise will take place on Saturday, November, 17, 2018, between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
This is a TRAINING EXERCISE ONLY, during which members of the unit will simulate a search for a missing subject.
Created in 2017, the Schaumburg Police Department Search and Rescue Unit is made up of approximately twenty part time auxiliary supervisors and officers as well as full time Community Service Officers. Members of the unit receive specialized training in search and rescue along with characteristics and behaviors of missing persons and locating missing persons.
The Schaumburg Police Department’s ultimate goal with all missing person cases is to find the person and safely return them to their families as quickly as possible. Police officers assigned to the Patrol, Special Operations and Investigations divisions are the first responders on missing person’s cases. When needed, this unit will supplement efforts already being handled by those officers. The greater the field of trained personnel the department has engaged in the search, the more likely subjects will be located quickly, reunited with family, or provided necessary medical and/or social services assistance.
All members of the Search and Rescue Unit will participate in the mock missing person search.
