Child at Risk
In an effort to assist families with “at risk” members (special needs, autism, dementia etc.) the Winchester Police Department offers a Child at Risk and Senior at Risk program. If you feel that a member of your family is at risk to wander, we strongly recommend you participate in the program. To do so, fill out the relevant form below and attach a current photo of your family member. By doing so, you will assist this department in locating your family member if the need arises. You will also be providing us with information that could help us understand how to communicate with the at-risk individual and how to contact family members if an at risk member is found. The information you provide also enables us to pass on important medical information to medical personal if needed. Complete the relevant form below and send it to Detective Paul DeLuca (email@example.com).
The Massachusetts State 911 Department recently approved a wireless tracking device known as EmSeeQ from EmFinders. this device enables law enforcement and emergency responders to locate a wandering individual who is wearing the device. The device is the same size as a wrist watch and can be worn on the wrist or ankle. It cannot be activated by the wearer. The device is activated when a caregiver contacts the EmFinder call center. The call center then coordinates with local law enforcement agencies to quickly locate and recover the missing indivdual. If you are interested in the EmSeeQ service, visit the EmFinders website for more information.
