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.

For more details about Project Lifesaver,  please contact 804-501-4950.

Project Lifesaver is funded through charitable donations from generous organizations and individuals.


At the current time, the County is absorbing the cost of the transmitter for those that are in need of this service.  There is a nominal ten dollar charge for the battery replacement in the transmitter unit.

Please contact us for further information, to understand your needs for this service, and to obtain an application.
