Year 13 Police Studies Land Search and Rescue (SAR) experience

Posted on April 27, 2022

Earlier this month the Year 13 Police Studies class were visited by Land SAR expert and co-ordinator, Senior Constable Brendon McCarthy, accompanied by Senior Constable Ian Willetts.

Through a presentation students learnt about the work the Land SAR undertake and pathway opportunities within the New Zealand Police. The practical aspects included assembling a stretcher and using a rope and a pulley system to rescue injured parties from a bush like setting.

This visit was held in conjunction with providing students with an opportunity to plan a career pathway within the New Zealand Police.
