Fort Lauderdale Police Department Locates Missing Person for the Fifth Time With the SafetyNet Tracking™ System
The Fort Lauderdale Police Department located a missing person with a cognitive condition using the SafetyNet Tracking™ system. In this case, a 55-year-old man with dementia was reported missing from his home on July 16 at 9:31 AM. Authorities from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department arrived on location and began searching for the individual. After following the signal emitting from the missing individual’s SafetyNet bracelet, the individual was located approximately a half mile away from the last location seen. It was the fifth time in two and a half months SafetyNet equipment was used to rescue the individual; he was also rescued on May 5, May 29, June 6 and June 16.
The SafetyNet Tracking system is designed to assist public safety agencies in locating persons who have cognitive conditions and have wandered off and are missing. SafetyNet clients wear a SafetyNet bracelet that emits radio frequency signals, which can be tracked by local public safety officials via their SafetyNet Search and Rescue Receivers.
The SafetyNet Tracking service is available in various coverage areas. For more information on the SafetyNet Tracking service and coverage areas, please contact (877) 4-FINDTHEM (877-434-6384) or visit safetynettracking.com .
