Caring for Those Who Wander From Home


The Care Alert! Program is for those with mental illness - such as Dysmnensia, Alzheimer’s, Down’s Syndrome, or other similar medical issues - that occasionally (or may possibly) wander from home and become lost. This program is designed to give the Police Department a head start if and when you have to report your loved one missing due to the above circumstances. This form will give us a valuable description and picture that can save us crucial seconds in locating and alerting surrounding cities of your loved one’s disappearance.

How to Sign Up


To sign up simply complete the Care Alert! Registration Form and mail it to the address on the form. You may also hand-deliver the completed application to the Records window along with a recent picture of your loved one and we will do the rest.

Your form will be stored in our secure Communications Center, which is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year-round. Please note: Your information will not be shared with the public in any way.
