Sheriff Jay Jones is pleased to announce that Project Lifesaver has come to Lee County. With help from the Pilot Clubs of Opelika and Lee County, the Lee County Sheriff's Office is now able to offer Project Lifesaver to the citizens of Lee County.
What is Project Lifesaver? This is a program designed to assist law enforcement agencies in locating wandering persons. The program was first designed to assist agencies that were spending many man hours trying to locate persons who were suffering from Alzheimer's Disease and had wandered off from their caregivers. Project Lifesaver has now expanded to include those persons suffering from Autism, Dementia, Mental Retardation or any Brain-Related disorder. Through the use of modern technology, participating agencies are now able to speed up the recovery time for those persons affected.
