What's up with JOSAR and JTNP?

Well this is certainly interesting. Not sure what it's all about, but it doesn't look good.

Aren't SAR operations typically under control of the Sheriff's Dept? Does this change when National Parks are involved?

It's my understanding that in California state law says search and rescue operations fall under the authority of each county's sheriff. However federal lands would normally be exempt from that requirement so they can do SAR operations as they like. There may also be a memorandum of understanding between national parks and their respective counties that further specifies who does what. JTNP is a little complicated since it's in two countries, Riverside and San Bernardino.

That is ... disappointing, to say the least.

I don't see how severing a connection between a community and the SAR that operates within that community serves the greater good.

Perhaps there's liability concerns or some such ( don't ask me details, just throwing that out there because from what I've seen that's often how rubbish like this get started ), but really, not great.
