Sheriff’s Office Participates in Project Life Saver Program
Project Life Saver is an international organization that provides tracking systems for children with autism or Down’s syndrome and adults with Alzheimer’s disease who are prone to wandering off. The Frederick County Sheriff’s office Project Life Saver program is funded through private donations. Each person enrolled in Project Life Saver wears a small transmitter, which transmits a signal on a set frequency. These frequencies can be tracked using special equipment that is located at the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office. Specially trained law enforcement and Community Assistance Patrol personnel use the equipment to locate the missing person. To date, Project Life Saver International has completed over 2,000 searches and has a 100% successful recovery rate.
