Through the David Lemi Scholarship Fund, the West Fargo Police Department is pleased to offer the community access to Project Lifesaver free of charge. Project Lifesaver provides transmitters for individuals with cognitive conditions that cause the propensity to wander, such as those with Alzheimer's or autism, so that they may be quickly found during periods of elopement.
Through the use of state-of-the-art radio frequency technology, innovative search and rescue techniques, and accredited first response training, Project Lifesaver member agencies have:
- Successfully located more than 3,400 special needs individuals
- Located individuals in less than 30 minutes, a 95 percent decrease in standard operations
