Salvager Squad

Of Web-rescue. A crack team of tekkies operating virtually but most often in reality/the Source. They are dedicated to saving 'victims' of the web; those thought to be suicidal, dangerous or addicted. They trace specific individuals or clans with the purpose of reaching them before they can harm others or themselves. When not tipped off, it can involve specialized tracking and tracing and high access levels. They have occasionally been criticized for interference in the choices of an individual and the freedom of the web. They work closely with rehabilitation methods and webworlds, and as a result are also criticized for mind-washing. However, in fighting webworlds such as Bedlam4 and encountering its 'victims', many of the patients they find require some kind of rehab. The division of Web-rescue work more indirectly, with the more widespread but more subtle forms of web addiction.
