VK9 SCENT SPECIFIC SEARCH AND RECOVERY (VK9 SSSAR) www.vk9sar.org
Director, New England Region
VK9 provides "specialized K9 support" to law enforcement agencies with the use of our K9’s in several different recovery venues including, but not limited to: abductions, missing person cases and homicides. Our K9's do live scent trailing / tracking, cadaver (both land and water work), and in evidence / article recovery. A more comprehensive list of services is provided on the VK9 website.
Our specialty is in the use of secondary scent, aged trails, and vehicle trails. We do extensive work in scent matching to identify if a matching scent is present at target locations. Additionally, our K9’s will provide a negative indication when scent is not present to the K9. We have worked many cases successfully using our techniques.
AI+RRNET (AERIAL IMAGERY [and] RESCUE RECOVERY NETWORK)

The high resolution imagery is obtained under guidance from AI+RRNET and relayed for analysis to VIASAR labs in Ohio where it is analyzed by professional analysts.
AI+RRNET provides both the coordinated SAR team mission planning and the link to digital imagery and analysis. AI+RRNET also deploys hasty teams in the area of the search. This simple idea / technique has led to victims being found on many occasions.
