Project Lifesaver began in Tippecanoe County in 2009. The program is organized through the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office. Project Lifesaver is a program designed to outfit citizens who suffer from Alzheimer's, Dementia, Autism or any other brain disorder that makes a person susceptible to wandering.
The participant is provided a bracelet by SafetyNet by LoJack. This bracelet can be placed on the wrist or ankle of the participant.
The bracelet emits a continuous unique signal. If the participant were to wander, a trained search and rescue team is organized and called into service. The search team uses specially designed equipment to track and locate the missing person wearing the bracelet.
