New Charlestown Police resource

For caregivers of persons with cognitive disorders

The Charlestown Police Department will be holding an informational meeting concerning the SafetyNet system, which is a system that provides technology to assist law enforcement in locating people with cognitive disorders, such as Autism, Alzheimer’s and other conditions, who may have wondered off and become lost. In Rhode Island there are several police and fire agencies that utilize the SafetyNet program.

The meeting will be held on April 23, 2014 at 6:00 PM at the Charlestown Police Department Community Room.

We are encouraging families to attend to learn more about SafetyNet and its potential partnership with the Charlestown Police Department. Our objective is to determine if there is a need within the community prior to entering into a partnership with SafetyNet. 

As with all programs that require extra technology there are costs associated with having such a program.

As a part of the informational meeting there will be a demonstration on how the system works.
