Project Lifesaver in Marion County
Project Lifesaver: Overview
The Marion County Sheriff's Office and the Marion County Search and Rescue Teams are part of Project Lifesaver International (“PLI”), a program designed for individuals suffering from developmental or dementia-type disorders that are prone to wander. PLI provides a tool to help us find and rescue missing loved ones.
Project Lifesaver: How it Works
Program participants wear a personalized bracelet which emits a tracking signal on an individualized FM radio frequency. Each participant's bracelet transmitter is assigned a radio frequency that is unique both to them and to their geographical area.
When a Project Lifesaver participant is determined to be missing, a caregiver will contact the Sheriff's Office via 911. Trained deputies will immediately respond to search for the missing person using PLI’s radio-frequency tracking equipment.
