PROGRAMS THAT HELP

Care Trak

 

The Care Trak program allows family members to track loved ones, who are impaired and have a history of wandering from their home. Care Trak is a mobile tracking system, that uses a radio frequency wrist band to locate individuals.

When an individual wearing a transmitter is reported missing, the local certified Care Trak law enforcement agency can start the search using a radio tracking system. You want Care Trak, because if someone is missing for 24 hours, their survival rate drops to 50%.

No search has lasted more than 30 minutes using Care Trak.
