Project Lifesaver
Purpose
The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely responses to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer's, autism, and other related conditions or disorders.

Saving Time, Money, & Loved ones
The task of searching for wandering or lost individuals with Alzheimer's, autism, Down Syndrome, dementia, or other cognitive conditions is a growing and serious responsibility. Without effective procedures and equipment, searches can involve multiple agencies, hundreds of officers, countless man hours and thousands of dollars. More importantly, because time is of the essence, every minute lost increases the risk of a tragic outcome.

Working hand-in-hand with trained public safety agencies, Project Lifesaver International (PLI) will help you save time, money and most importantly, your loved ones.

Enrolling a Friend or Loved One
If you are interested in enrolling a friend or loved one on the program, and you know of a Project Lifesaver agency in your area, please call the Sheriff's Office at 605-696-8300 as they will have the most up-to-date information to help get you started and enroll your loved one on the program.
