The S.O.S. (Sheriff's Operation Safeguard) is a program in which family members of memory-impaired persons can register their loved one with the Sheriff's Office and receive a free identification bracelet to help bring them safely home. Upon enrolling in the S.O.S. program, confidential information about registered participants will be maintained in a database on our primary computer system. Each participant is given a bracelet that displays the phone number for the Sheriff's Office and an identification number. In the event that a registered memory-impaired patient becomes lost or confused, the telephone number can be called to notify the appropriate personnel. The I.D. number will allow us to retrieve information from the S. O. S. database to arrange for safe return.
