What is Project Lifesaver?
Project Lifesaver is a national electronic tracking program used to assist law enforcement in locating people with Alzheimer's Disease, dementia and related disorders, and children with Down Syndrome or Autism Spectrum Disorder. http://www.projectlifesaver.org/
How does it work?
A personalized state-of-the art battery powered transmitter is used that emits a constant radio signal 24 hours a day. The radio transmitter is the size of a wrist watch and provides a constant radio signal. The Oneida County Sheriff's Office has a 100 % successful recovery rate. The lost subjects are generally located within 30 minutes.
How much does it cost?
There is no startup cost to enroll a loved one in the program. Each client is outtfitted with a transmitter and battery tester. The only cost to the client is a monthly service fee of $10.00 which covers the cost to replace the battery each month.
How to enroll?
If you would like more information or if you know someone who may need to be enrolled in the program, please contact Correctional Officer Fred Lomanto at (315) 765-2220.
