Project Lifesaver

Project Life­saver is more than wear­able locat­ing tech­nol­o­gy; it’s a pro­gram com­prised of com­po­nents specif­i­cal­ly designed to pro­tect “at risk” indi­vid­u­als such as Alzheimer’s patients or chil­dren with down syn­drome or autism who are prone to wandering. 

Project Life­saver relies on pulse-car­ri­er wave radio-fre­quen­cy tech­nol­o­gy, com­pli­ment­ed by a search and res­cue team that has received spe­cial train­ing.  Peo­ple who use the ser­vices wear a per­son­al­ized one-ounce wrist­band that emits a con­stant track­ing sig­nal.  When care­givers noti­fy the local Project Life­saver agency that the per­son is miss­ing, a search and res­cue team responds to the wan­der­er’s area and starts search­ing with the mobile loca­tor track­ing sys­tem. Search and res­cue times have been reduced from hours and days to min­utes.  Since the pro­gram was intro­duced Project life­saver has suc­cess­ful­ly res­cued 2,500 individuals. 

To par­tic­i­pate in our Project Life­saver pro­gram, we would request up to a $25 month­ly dona­tion or a $300 dona­tion for a year of service. 

Since 2006, the War­ren Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office been a mem­ber of the Project Life­saver com­mu­ni­ty to offer our res­i­dents the most wide­ly used and proven most effec­tive SAR pro­gram designed for “at risk” pop­u­la­tions.  Project Life­saver bridges the gap between first respon­ders and their com­mu­ni­ties. Rela­tion­ships are formed, and trust is built.  Project Life­saver reduces the time, funds, and man­pow­er need­ed for search and res­cue mis­sions involv­ing a spe­cial needs individual. 

The ser­vice can be sus­pend­ed or dis­con­tin­ued at any time.
The War­ren Coun­ty Sher­if­f’s Office will come to your home, pro­vide the track­ing bracelet and even change the bat­ter­ies as need­ed. If you’d like to remove your loved one from the pro­gram sim­ply con­tact us.

Finan­cial assis­tance may be avail­able, if you are inter­est­ed in Project Life­saver or if you any ques­tions, please con­tact the War­ren Coun­ty Sher­if­f’s Office at 540–635-4128 and we will be hap­py to assist you!
