Join

The Bonneville Sheriff's Search & Rescue patrol is always looking for new members. Prospective members must meet the following criteria:

  • 21 years or older
  • Immediate access to a 4-wheel drive vehicle
  • Complete a CPR and First Aid course
  • Pass a physical fitness test of an unencumbered 1 mile walk in 16 minutes (some specialty teams have further physical fitness requirements)

If you are interested in joining, please fill out a short form so we can contact with you. If you decide to join, we will have you fill out an application and bring it to one of our meetings. Interviews are conducted in the spring and fall. After an interview, the Sheriff's Office will perform a background investigation. Following that, new members will be invited to join following a 6 month probationary period.

We regularly meet on the 2nd and last Mondays of each month at 7:00pm at our building at 2365 Hemmert Way in Idaho Falls. Check the calendar before you come though because we sometimes change the schedule. Please feel free to attend and speak with us. Note that due to liability requirements, you can only attend a maximum of 2 training meetings before being sworn in.
