The Lockport Police Department has implemented the Care Trak Rescue Program. This program allows family members to track loved ones who are impaired and have a history of wandering away from home. Care Trak Rescue is a mobile tracking system that uses a radio frequency wrist band to locate lost individuals. When an individual wearing a transmitter is reported missing, the local certified Care Trak Rescue law enforcement agency can start the search using a radio tracking system. The tracking system has a range of up to one mile.
The following are criteria for the program:
Difficulty in communication skills
Documented diagnosis of Autism, Alzheimer's, Dementia, Psychotic Disorder, or Developmental Disability
History of wandering
Must be under continuous twenty-four-hour supervision
Resident of the City of Lockport
This tool provides peace of mind when you have a loved one who might wander from home.
