The Meeker County Sheriff's Office is bringing Project Lifesaver/LoJack SafetyNet Services to Meeker County.
Designed to track and rescue those with cognitive conditions who tend to wander, this service answers a critical need for people at risk of wandering, including those with Alzheimer's, autism, Down Syndrome, and dementia.
After enrollment, a LoJack SafetyNetPersonal Locator Unit (PLU) will be provided. The PLU should be worn on the client's wrist or ankle.
How it Works
The PLU constantly emits a radio frequency signal, which can be tracked regardless of where the person has wandered - even into a densely wooded area, a marsh, a concrete structure such as a garage, or a building constructed with steel. When a client goes missing, caregivers notify law enforcement. Deputies from the Sheriff's Office and other local law enforcement officers are dispatched to the wanderer's area with portable handheld LoJackSafetyNet Search and Rescue receivers.
