Project Lifesaver is a rapid-response program that aids victims (and their families) who wander as a result of cognitive impairments or other afflictions. The program combines technology and specially trained Sheriff’s Deputies to locate individuals who have wandered. Project Lifesaver clients wear a “watch-type” wristband transmitter (worn on the wrist, ankle or as a necklace), which emits a tracking signal. Go to for more information. 631-641-9679.
