C.F.S.I. State Coordinators are the back bone of a search & investigation. It's solely their responsibility to facilitate the search & investigation, effectively apply all tools provided to their state case and continue the effort to transfer critical information from the field to the assigned Private Investigator. This effort must be a constant until we achieve a FOUND SAFE.
