Bringing loved ones home
The Warren County Sheriff’s Office has joined with law enforcement agencies across the country in support of the Project Lifesaver program. Project Lifesaver enables the Warren County Sheriff’s Office to provide enhanced support and assistance to Warren County residents who are primary caregivers for an individual suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia disorder as well as families of children afflicted with Down syndrome, autism, traumatic brain injuries or cognitive impairments.
In the event that an individual previously registered with the Warren County Sheriff’s Office wanders away from home and becomes confused or lost, the Sheriff’s Officers can initiate a local response to remedy the situation. Project Lifesaver allows for a proactive response by law enforcement in these cases. This not only saves time and manpower but also, gives caregivers and families peace of mind and reassurance that all possible resources will be utilized in the effort to locate and return their loved one home safely.
Participants in the Project Lifesaver program wear a special wrist or ankle bracelet equipped with a small transmitter which emits a signal that law enforcement can track when someone goes missing. Search times have been reduced from days and hours, to minutes. Average recovery times are well under 30 minutes.
The Warren County Sheriff’s Office serves as the lead agency for Project Lifesaver and in this role; it coordinates the overall operations and management of the program to ensure effective services. The Sheriff’s Office works in conjunction with other area agencies to facilitate a collaborative and cohesive effort in support of the residents of Warren County.
