Project Lifesaver

Project Lifesaver is a national, proactive electronic tracking program used to assist in locating people with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and related disorders, as well as children with Down Syndrome or Autism Spectrum Disorder who wander from home or become lost. 

How It Works

A personalized state-of-the-art battery powered transmitter is used that emits a constant radio signal 24 -hours a day. The radio transmitter is the size of a wrist watch and provides a constant radio signal. Once the Sheriff’s Office is notified that a person is missing, deputies identify the signal from a specialized directional antenna and are able to track the wandering person. 

Deputies have the capability to search several miles by foot, car or even in the air. Project Lifesaver has responded nationwide to 1,700 rescues and all were 100% successful with recovery time of less than 30 minutes. 


For less than $100, the client will be outfitted with the transmitter, battery and battery tester. After the first month the only cost to the client will be for maintenance supplies. If you would like to sponsor someone, your contribution will ensure that the client receive the equipment and service they need. 

The one time start-up cost of enrolling is $99, then only $30 per month for maintenance supplies. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify.
