Pasco County Sheriff’s Office now provides services from SafetyNet by LoJack to assist in search and rescue operations for subjects who have been diagnosed with a cognitive disorder; including Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, Autism, and Down syndrome.
How SafetyNet Works:
SafetyNet provides a tracking device to each enrolled member as well as all materials to maintain the device directly to the caregiver or family of the enrolled member. Each device has a 6 month battery life and is completely waterproof. The device can be tracked within 1 mile on the ground and 5 to 7 miles in the air via helicopter. There are 30+ members of the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office trained and certified to respond and track SafetyNet members, and we will continue to train members on a regular basis. Cost for the program varies and all information on price can be obtained by calling SafetyNet’s 24/7 Customer Service line. If a family is unable to afford part or all of the costs of the program, the PSO may be able to help with obtaining assistance. For more information about SafetyNet or to learn how to apply, please contact MissingPerson@pascosheriff.org or call 727-277-7086.
