Project Lifesaver

People with cognitive disorders, such as Autism or Alzheimer’s, or other medical conditions may have a tendency to wander away from caregivers. Funded by the Folsom Police Foundation, Folsom Police Department’s Project Lifesaver Program is designed to help bring these individuals home quickly and safely to their families.

Each qualified participant in the Project Lifesaver Program is outfitted with a bracelet that contains a radio transmitter. Should the participant wander away, the caregiver can call the Folsom Police Department and the responding officers will bring a receiver that has the ability to receive the signal from that specific transmitter assigned to the missing participant.
