Project Lifesaver: Now in Marion County! - Project Lifesaver International (PLI), a wellestablished program designed for individuals suffering from developmental or dementia-type disorders that are prone to wander, is now available for eligible participants in Marion County. PLI provides a tool to help find and rescue missing loved ones.

Program participants wear a personalized bracelet which emits a tracking signal on an individualized assigned FM radio frequency. The radio frequency is unique to both the individual and their geographical area. When a PLI client is determined missing, a caregiver will contact the Marion County Sheriff ’s Office via 911. Trained deputies will immediately respond to search for the missing person using PLI’s radio-frequency tracking equipment.

There are costs associated with participating in the Project Lifesaver Program. To find out how you or your organization can donate to Marion County’s Project Lifesaver program, please contact our Project Lifesaver Coordinator at 503-588-7981.
