Project Lifesaver Comes to Roseville
- Do you have a family member diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia? Has your loved one ever “wandered” from home? In an effort to provide peace of mind and special assistance to caregivers, the Roseville Police Department has entered into partnership with the non-profit organization Project Lifesaver to provide a reliable, rapid-response approach to locating at-risk residents who may be missing.
- Those enrolled in the Project Lifesaver program wear a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal. When the Roseville Police Department is notified the person is missing, a search and rescue team responds to the area with a mobile locater tracking system. Recovery time is routinely less than 30 minutes.
- Currently, Roseville is the only community in California actively participating in the Project Lifesaver program, which has been generously funded in part by the Sutter Roseville Medical Center, Union Pacific Railroad, and the Wells Construction Company.
- Roseville’s public safety dispatchers are the administrators of this program, and work in conjunction with patrol officers and volunteers to ensure Project Lifesaver’s success.
- Currently, Roseville’s at-risk residents with Alzheimer's or dementia qualify to become Project Lifesaver members. However, in the near future, other at-risk citizens with developmental disabilities like Downs Syndrom or autism will also qualify.
