Project Lifesaver

Help Daphne Police Bring Your Loved Ones Home

Project Lifesaver is the nation’s most effective program in locating and rescuing the missing and wandering victims of Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism, and other related mental disorders. Baldwin County Sheriff James Johnson was instrumental in bringing Project Lifesaver to Baldwin County. Representatives from the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, Daphne Police Department, Fairhope Police Department, and Mercy Medical later joined forces to fully implement the program.

A profile and medical history are completed on each participant and shared with law enforcement should the need for a search and rescue arise. Enrolled participants wear a transmitter wristband primarily on a wrist or ankle. The caregiver checks the bracelet transmitter daily to make sure the battery is charged. The battery and wristband are replaced to ensure a strong signal strength, as needed.

Any resident of Baldwin County affected by Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism, or any other mental disability, who lives in a personal residence may qualify. Participants pay $10 per month, however, no one is denied enrollment due to the lack of ability to pay. Interested Baldwin County residents should call the Baldwin County Sheriff's Department.

Project Lifesaver relies on donations from the community to support the program. Baldwin County Sheriff's Department manages fundraising for the program. Tax deductible donations may be mailed to:
