Project Lifesaver

 

Five members of the Scott County Sheriff's Office have been trained on one of the most up-to-date community projects in the nation.  Project Lifesaver uses state of the art technology in assisting those who care for victims of Alzheimers and other related mental dysfunctional disorders. 

 

Victims include the elderly and even the youngest in our community.  Victims tend to wander from their homes and therefore are in danger.  Lifesaver places radio transmitters on these "wandering ones", then officers trained in using the receivers and other locating equipment are notified and able to find the "lost" in minutes. Call for current pricing.

 

The Scott County Sheriff's Office is pleased to be able to present this to the citizens of our community. 

 

Project Lifesaver is a wonderful program that allows us to show communities that we really do care.  We hope you do too.

 

For more information on applying for the project or for making donations contact Billy Jack Cox at Scott County Sheriff's Office 276-386-1351  x2. To email fill out the form below.

 

The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer’s, autism, and other related conditions or disorders.

The task of searching for wandering or lost individuals with Alzheimer’s, autism, Down syndrome, dementia or other cognitive conditions is a growing and serious responsibility. Without effective procedures and equipment, searches can involve multiple agencies, hundreds of officers, countless man hours and thousands of dollars. More importantly, because time is of the essence, every minute lost increases the risk of a tragic outcome.


Working hand in hand with trained public safety agencies, Project Lifesaver International (PLI) will help you save time, money and most importantly, your loved ones.
