Project Lifesaver has a successful track record of locating and returning wandering adults and children to families and caregivers.

The program relies on proven technology and specially trained search and rescue teams. Project Lifesaver clients wear a personalized wristband that emits an invisible tracking signal. When caregivers notify the Sheriff’s Office that a loved one is missing, a search and rescue team responds to the area and starts searching with specialized tracking equipment.

Utilizing this technology, search times have been reduced from hours and days to an average of less than 30 minutes. Project Lifesaver has more than 1,400 participating agencies across the U.S., Canada, and Australia, and has performed more than 3,600 searches in the last 20 years.
