Project Lifesaver International (PLI) was founded by public safety officers themselves to bring about a solution that facilitates not just the speedy return of wanderers to their families upon being found but the actual rapid location of the wanderers themselves — a strategy that greatly increases the chance that the wanderer will be found alive.
Training for a new agency includes two days of on-site instruction for up to 15 people in your agency, provided by a State Coordinator (a law enforcement professional certified by PLI to train others) or by PLI’s own staff. PLI also provides one-day training for up to six officers to be trained as instructors and re-certify staff every two years. Each new agency will also receive training on Alzheimer’s and Autism, as well as other disorders, to help when responding to a missing client.
For information to join, please call Project Lifesaver at (757) 546-5502 . Costs may vary.
