Project Lifesaver is a 501[c]3 non-profit organization that provides a technological means for law enforcement officers to more rapidly locate persons who, due to a documented medical condition, have a prior history/are at risk of wandering from their homes and/or caregivers. Law enforcement officers are trained and equipped with radio receiving equipment to locate and rescue those at-risk individuals diagnosed with certain cognitive disorders--including, but not limited to Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Down Syndrome, and Autism Spectrum--that are not expected to improve as the patient ages. The individual will be equipped with a permanent wristband transmitter that emits a unique radio frequency. Should s/he go missing, the caregiver is instructed to call the Sheriff’s Office, and a trained team of law enforcement officers will respond with the equipment. The individual’s unique code will be entered into the receiver and a search will be initiated. The average search time with this program has been found to be less than 30 minutes.
