For those residents living with Alzheimer's, dementia and autism, a bracelet the size of the average watch could be the difference between life and death. The bracelet emits a radio frequency that assists public safety in locating someone who is unaccounted for and may not be able to find their way back.

What Is Project Lifesaver?

Project Lifesaver is a community based, public safety, non-profit organization that provides public safety with additional tools to quickly locate individuals with cognitive disorders who are prone to the life-threatening behavior of wandering. The program coordinates the placement of personalized radio transmitter wrist or ankle bands on at-risk individuals.

The Lincoln Police Department (LPD) has joined the National Project Lifesaver Program and has trained personnel to be ready to operate Project Lifesaver equipment to assist in the location and safe return of at-risk individuals.

The search times for certified Project Lifesaver agencies have been reduced from hours, potentially days, down to minutes. Recovery times for Project Lifesaver agencies average 30 minutes, which is 95% less time than standard operations without Project Lifesaver.
