The 106 volunteer members of the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office volunteere search and rescue team donated more than 5,200 hours in fiscal year 2015-16. A major factor in many search missions is the Rescue-1 helicopter, which Sheriff Scott Mascher points out is operated at no cost to the county – or taxpayers – through the use of drug seizure funds. The YCSO operates a Jeep Posse, Air Group, and Yavapai County Mounted Sheriff’s Posse. VVN photos/Vyto Starinskas
