[ARCHIVED] Learn More About Project Lifesaver

Loudoun County, VA: Representatives from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Project Lifesaver program will be in attendance at this Saturday’s celebration of INOVA Loudoun Hospital’s 100 Years of Service at Ida Lee Park in Leesburg, VA.

The Project Lifesaver Program is an electronic based tracking system for people with medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Autism, or other conditions, that have a tendency to wander from home and become lost. The program allows Loudoun Deputies certified as Electronic Search Specialists to fit clients with a wristband transmitter that emits an automatic tracking signal. If the client becomes lost, the specially trained deputies will use a mobile antenna and hand-held directional device to help locate the client.

Loudoun Sheriff’s Deputies trained in the program will be on hand to discuss the program with interested residents who can view some of the tracking system equipment used to help locate missing clients.

“The goal of the program is not to have to conduct a search and rescue,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Michael L. Chapman. “It is a proactive program that gives the client’s caregiver peace of mind,” Chapman added.

The free community celebration is Saturday, June 23, 2012, from noon to 4PM at the Ida Lee Park Festival Field located at 60 Ida Lee Drive in Leesburg, Va.
