Project Lifesaver - Bringing Loved Ones Home
The mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer’s, autism, and other related conditions or disorders. The Fredericksburg Police Department works hand in hand with Project Lifesaver to locate wandering patients before they fall victim to the elements or accidents.

Clients enrolled in Project Lifesaver wear a small personal transmitter around the wrist or ankle that emits an individual tracking signal. If a client goes missing, the caregiver notifies the Police Department and a trained emergency team responds. Most who wander are found within a few miles of home, and search times have been reduced from hours or days to minutes utilizing Project Lifesaver technology. Recovery times for Project Lifesaver clients average 30 minutes – 95% less time than traditional search methods.

Project Lifesaver offers a range of technology to suit the needs of clients. Some services may be covered by insurance, but the Police Department will not deny enrollment in Project Lifesaver based upon the client’s inability to pay.

To learn more about Project Lifesaver International, visit their website or contact Sergeant Crystal Hill at 540-372-4262 or via email.
