The Jackson County Sheriff's Office announces they are taking the lead role as regional coordinators for the Southern Oregon Child Abduction Response Team (SO CART). Itis one of just 20 recognized teams across the nation. SO CART just finished its re-certification process, involving policy change, training and commitment to the safe return of children.
The SO CART team is a rapid response and deployment team, including an array of professionals from Lake, Curry, Klamath, Josephine and Jacksn counties in the fields of law enforcement, DHS, and mental health services. A regional Amber Alert system is also being implemented.
