Sounds to me like you have allowed your boy to overstimulate when meeting new people and get rewarded. I am not surprised, as he has gotten older and matured that he is now looking at things a bit different.
I would take a break from SAR, find a good general trainer and have him assessed and see if you can teach him some self control before meeting people. He should not be off leash. At all.
