Project Lifesaver


Many families have loved ones who are prone to wandering, due to Alzheimer’s, Autism, Dementia or Down Syndrome.

Norfolk Sheriff’s Office is here to help with Project Lifesaver, which was implemented in 2001.

Once you are approved to be on the Project Lifesaver Program, we will place a personalized radio transmitter on your loved one.  This life saving service is only $10.00 a month.  If they wander away, you can call the Project Lifesaver number to help find them, which is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Once in the vicinity, lost loved ones are usually found within minutes.   These devices, about the size of a wrist-watch, emit a signal for about a half mile radius that is used to track the device.

NSO has rescued more than 400 people since the program started in 2001. That’s the most rescues out of over 1,600 Project Lifesaver public safety organizations nationwide.Certified Project lifesaver personnel are ready to respond day or night in the event a client becomes lost.
