Medic Alert L.E.A.P. (Law Enforcement Agency Portal)

The Amherst Police Department has partnered with the Medic Alert Foundation in an effort to protect community members with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or autism who are at a risk for wandering. The hope is that family members will use Medic Alert as part of their safety plan, and as a result provide any public safety agency with real time information should a loved one go missing. Medic Alert is providing a free data base as well as a free medical identification bracelet or necklace to people who enroll. The worn jewelry will provide a unique identification number and contact information that can be used at any time of the day or night to help reunite the wanderer with his/her family or caregiver.
