Laramie County Project Lifesaver

Check out the proposed Project Lifesaver legislation here


What is Project Lifesaver
The Cheyenne Police Department, in partnership with the Laramie County Sheriff’s Department and the Wyoming Mounted Association Search and Rescue has brought Project Lifesaver to Laramie County. Project Lifesaver assists county residents who have a medical condition that may cause them to wander. The project is a rapid-response unit that aids victims and families suffering from Down Syndrome, Alzheimer’s, brain injuries, Autism and other dementia related disorders.


How it Works
Project Lifesaver relies on proven radio technology and specially trained search and rescue teams. Clients that are enrolled in Project Lifesaver wear a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal. When care givers notify the local Project Lifesaver team that the person is missing, a search and rescue team responds to the wanderer’s area and starts searching with the mobile locater tracking system. This system has changed search times from hours and days to minutes.
