What is Project Lifesaver?

The Niagara Regional Police Service Project Lifesaver program combines radio technology with a coordinated police response to locate wandering and disoriented loved ones due to Alzheimer's, autism or other conditions or disorders.

This program applies to those who have a history of wandering or who a physician has indicated may wander because of a cognitive disability or impairment (and not related to interpersonal, parental, familial, child care or caregiver issues).

How does Project Lifesaver work?

Project Lifesaver participants wear a wristband that emits a tracking signal. The wristband is a one-ounce, battery-operated transmitter that emits an FM radio signal every second, 24 hours a day. These products are supplied directly by Project Lifesaver International.

When caregivers notify the Niagara Regional Police Service that their loved one is missing, a Search and Rescue team responds to the area where the person was last seen and utilizes a specialized mobile location tracking system.
