Loudoun County, VA: The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is teaming with the Loudoun County Disability Services Board to raise public awareness about the Project Lifesaver Program. 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 3rd Annual Summer Block Party will be held Saturday, July 14, 2012 at the Village at Leesburg from 3PM to 8PM.
