Schenectady County Sheriffs to provide hands-on demo of the life saving technology
Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara announced $10,000 in grant funding he has secured to expand the Project Lifesaver program in Schenectady County. Sheriff Dominic Dagostino joined Santabarbara on Wednesday to receive the funding and discussed recent successes in the launching of Schenectady County’s pilot program.
Project Lifesaver is designed to help local law enforcement agencies find missing people who have a tendency to wander, including people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Alzheimer’s and other related conditions. These individuals wear a discreet bracelet on their wrist or ankle, which when activated, will allow law enforcement officers to quickly find them without the need for massive search and rescue efforts.
Santabarbara and Dagostino have teamed up for this expansion of the program and encourage parents and caregivers to take advantage of this lifesaving technology to keep their loved ones safe.
