The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office Project Lifesaver program is a countywide emergency response locator service capable of finding individuals diagnosed with cognitive impairments which may cause them to wander and become lost.  The program combines radio technology and specially trained search and rescue personnel from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office. Project Lifesaver clients wear a personalized one ounce battery operated transmitter bracelet which emits a tracking signal every second, 24 hours a day. Transmitters are smaller than a quarter and each transmitter has its own unique frequency.

The informational seminar will provide caregivers with valuable information about the program and an opportunity to view the technology.
