Project Lifesaver is a program of proactive involvement and specialized operations that respond toincidents of victims of Alzheimer’s and other related disorders, that have wandered from home, become lost and cannot find their way back home.
Clients of the program wear a personal locator unit (P.L.U.) on a wristband that is assigned a specific FM frequency, and emits a tracking signal. The police department is equipped with both mobile and handheld locator tracking units that receive the signal from the P.L.U.
If/When caregivers notify the police department that a loved one has gone missing, the officer’s receiver is set to a specific frequency. Once in the area of the client’s last known location, the receiver will detect within a ¾ to 1 mile range on the ground. The mobile unit that attaches to the police cruisers has ¼ mile range. Once in range the receiver will emit a chirping sound that gets louder the closer you get to the P.L.U. The average recovery time is less than 30 minutes.
