Project Lifesaver offered by the Morris County Sheriff’s Office

The Chester Township Police Department would like to make residents aware of a program offered by the Morris County Sheriff’s Office called Project Lifesaver. The Project Lifesaver program is a free service offered by the Morris County Sheriff’s Office and is aimed at providing enhanced support and assistance to Morris County residents who are primary caregivers for an individual suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia disorder as well as families of children afflicted with Down syndrome, autism, traumatic brain injuries or cognitive impairments. These individuals might be prone to wander away from home and become confused or lost. Project Lifesaver allows for a proactive response by law enforcement if this happens. This not only saves time and manpower but also, gives caregivers and families peace of mind and reassurance that all possible resources will be utilized in the effort to locate and return their loved one home safely.” Click here to learn more.
