Learn About Project Lifesaver
Project Lifesaver is a rapid response program that aids victims and families who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, and Autism. The program uses state of the art technology and specially trained officers to locate individuals who have wandered away. There is an application process and a monthly fee required for this service.
The client wears a personalized bracelet that emits a tracking signal, allowing the officers to locate the patient quickly. The average rescue time is 22 minutes after the individual has been reported missing. Project Lifesaver has been a very successful program for the sheriff’s office, because no deaths or serious injuries have been reported once the specially trained officers have located the individual.
