Search & Rescue


Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, members of Broadwater County Sheriff's Search and Rescue are on call to assist the county's residents and visitors who find themselves in need.  They also answer calls for mutual aid from neighboring counties.

They assist in the recovery of deceased subjects, aircraft related beacon searches, support of criminal investigations with evidence searches, disaster response, and general logistic support of Sheriff's Office personnel.

The team is trained to use specialized equipment to handle a variety of emergencies such as high-angle rock rescues, car-over-the-side accidents, downed aircraft, swiftwater rescues and other wilderness medical emergencies. The team is also highly proficient in search operations for overdue hikers, mountain bikers, missing children and lost hunters.

Broadwater County Search and Rescue was graciously donated $45,000 by Graymont. The money was donated for a much needed new side by side. We purchased a 2024 Polaris ranger XP1000 Northstar Ultimate. Hopefully with the new side by side, Search and Rescue can better serve the community if they are needed. Thank you Graymont for the donation. Thank you for the support and what you do for the community.
