TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A program with a 100-percent success rate of finding people is expanding in Tippecanoe County.
Project Lifesaver is expanding to accommodate for about 20 people.
Project Lifesaver works with first responders and people with Alzheimer's, Autism or Down Syndrome to help find those people, if they were to wander off.
Thursday, officers were trained to use equipment to find sensors.
People involved in the program wear a wristband or ankle bracelet with a similar sensor in case they wander off.
Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Sgt. Brian Lowe says they've had the program for two years now.
"The frequency is specific to them," Lowe said. "We have all the information on file, so if they were to wander off or their care taker loses them, we would send our search team out and search for that specific signal."
The Sheriff's office, Tippecanoe County Community Corrections and the West Lafayette and Purdue police departments took part in the training.
