| Project Lifesaver Program
Sheriff’s Project Lifesaver Program Works to Quickly Find Those Prone to Wander Project Lifesaver is a program of the Morris County Sheriff’s Office that provides 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 Morris County Sheriff’s Office was the first agency in New Jersey to create a Project Lifesaver program, and was instrumental in bringing it statewide.
The program provides tracking bracelets for people who are prone to wandering and becoming lost, said Morris County Edward V. Rochford. When a person is reported missing members of the Morris County Sheriff’s Emergency Services team deploy specialized tracking equipment to locate the individual, Rochford said.
"In the past it took several hours and dozens of officers to locate a missing person,” Rochford said. “Clients enrolled in the Project Lifesaver program are typically found within 20 minutes by two officers.”
Since the program is statewide, a caregiver may take the person who is on the Project Lifesaver program anywhere in the state, and should they wander or become missing, the sheriff in that county will be able to track and locate that individual.
