Project Lifesaver Halton

Project Lifesaver Halton is a program that helps families protect members who may wander or bolt, typically individuals living with:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • autism
  • down syndrome
  • acquired brain injury
  • other kinds of cognitive impairment

People using the program, coordinated by the Halton Regional Police Service, wear a small bracelet with a transmitter that sends out a radio tracking signal 24-hours a day, seven days a week. If caregivers notify police the individual is missing, a specially trained emergency response team will use mobile tracking equipment to find them.

Please contact the Halton Regional Police Service to apply for the program.

Subsidy for Project Lifesaver Halton

Halton residents with low incomes, as well as people receiving Ontario Works and Ontario Disability Support, may qualify for a subsidy to cover the Project Lifesaver Halton costs. Once Police have determined if families meet the program requirements, they will ask if subsidy is required and connect families with Halton Region for the next steps.
