I have 6 folders in SharePoint 2013, HR, Marketing, IT, Training, Legal, and Ops...Each of these 6 folders has a metadata column called FilePurpose...Each of these 6 folders are in a subsite

I want to search all 6 of these folders for files that have a FilePurpose value of "Retention Policy"

I want to make this search available at the parent and each of the 6 subsites.  Is this possible ?
