What is Project Lifesaver? A program run by local Law Enforcement to more easily locate those prone to wandering (ie., Autism, Alzheimer’s), via wrist- watch size radio frequency transmitter technology.
The Goal of Project Lifesaver is to save lives – by locating missing persons who suffer from Alzheimer’s Diseases, Autism Spectrum Disorder, persons with Developmental Disabilities or other high risk wanderers.
Project Lifesaver has a proven record in over 1900 searches nationally. It is a reliable, effective tool for locating individuals.
It offers peace of mind to caregivers.
Individuals enrolled in the program wear a personalized wristband that emits a silent tracking signal every second, 24 hours a day. When caregivers notify Law Enforcement that the person is missing, the Sheriff’s Department’s specially trained officers respond and search using a mobile tracking system. The average search and rescue time is less than 30 minutes.
