Menifee Police Department launches Project Lifesaver Program

The Menifee Police Department announced the launch of its Project Lifesaver (PLS) Program. This program was created as a search and rescue program for public safety agencies, which is designed to aid in locating those with dementia, Alzheimer’s, autism, brain injuries, special needs, etc., who are prone to the life-threatening conditions of wandering.

The primary mission of PLS is to provide timely responses to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children with the propensity to wander due to a cognitive condition.

The method relies on proven radio technology and specially trained Menifee Police Department search and rescue teams. Clients enrolled in PLS are outfitted with a radio frequency transmitter that is always worn on the individual’s wrist or ankle. Each transmitter emits and individualized frequency signal that is unique to the client. 

If a PLS client is reported missing, specially trained officers will be able to track the missing person utilizing specialized equipment. PLS has the potential to reduce the location time of a participant from hours, or potentially days, down to minutes.

The Menifee Police Department recently purchased seven PLS transponders with plans to purchase more as the program and interest grow.
