Project Lifesaver

The goal of this public safety program is to “locate missing person’s suffering from mental dysfunction disorders”, such as Alzheimers, Autism or Down Syndrome.

If you have a loved one who has a history of wandering due to a disorder, Project Lifesaver may be an option for you. Participants are selected on a case by case basis and once selected, are fitted with a Project Lifesaver wristband which allows for continual tracking by trained personnel.

If you have questions about Project Lifesaver, contact Sgt. Wiessinger at 608-849-2661.
