SafetyNet

Goal

The goal of SafetyNet is to save lives — by locating missing persons who suffer from Alzheimer’s, Autism, or persons with Developmental Disabilities or other high risk wanderers. 

SafetyNet has a proven record in over 1,900 searches nationally. It is a reliable, effective tool for locating individuals. It offers peace of mind to caregivers.

How it Works

Individuals enrolled in the program wear a personalized wristband that emits a silent tracking signal every second, 24 hours a day. When caregivers notify Law Enforcement that the person is missing, the Sheriff’s Office specially trained officers respond and search using a mobile tracking system. The average search and rescue time is less than 30 minutes. 

 

Eligibility

  • Must be a Clark County resident AND

  • Have a diagnosed condition with a history of wandering

 

Enrollment

The following three steps are taken for enrollment:
 

  • An initial assessment is done to determine eligibility

  • Once approved, a trained staff member will place the bracelet on the person

  • Staff will make monthly visits to ensure the equipment is working properly
