The Rock County Sheriff’s Office implemented the Project Lifesaver Program in 2010. The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children have Alzheimer’s, Autism, and any other circumstances that people may have that creates a danger of them wandering off. 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.
Most who wander are found within a few miles from home, and search times have been reduced from hours and days to minutes. Recovery times for Project Lifesaver clients average 30 minutes.
There is an initial $25 subscription fee and a monthly maintenance fee of $10 with quarterly billing. Financial hardship cases will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
