HANTSAR demonstrates their water capability.

On Friday 1st July, HANTSAR gave a demonstration to representatives of Hampshire Constabulary of a joint search exercise using a traditional ‘bank search’ team and an ‘in-water’ team.

This type of search is a new capability for HANTSAR and significantly increases the possibility of detection. By using both search techniques together ensures that shrubs and reeds on the waterline, as well as bank undercuts, can be searched.

This type of search is just a part of the search and rescue skills HANTSAR are now providing to the police.
