Members of the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office were invited to a meeting in Sayville to accept a donation for the department’s Project Lifesaver program.
The Pilot Club of Sayville donated 10 lifesaver bracelets, which are worn by people with a cognitive impairment such as dementia, Alzheimer’s or autism, who might wander.
The bracelet has a tracking signal linked to a handheld unit used by specially trained deputies to find the missing person.
"We all really importantly want to help other people, and that's the whole core of the organization, finding people who have the time to give and help out,” says Gene Hasemann, of the Pilot Club.
More information about the department’s Project Lifesaver program can be found on their website.
