Delaware County Sheriff’s Office
announces its Implementation of Project Lifesaver

On behalf of the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office I am pleased to announce our participation in a joint venture with the Schoharie County Sheriff’s Office, sponsored by Ann Thayer, Program Manager of the Leatherstocking Region Alzheimer’s Association and with the support of the O’Connor Foundation, Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Delaware County Senior Council and the Delaware County Office for the Aging to bring Project Lifesaver, a rapid response program aimed at locating victims suffering from Alzheimer’s disease (and related disorders such as Down syndrome and Autism) who have wandered and become lost, to Delaware County. I am also pleased to acknowledge the involvement of the New York City DEP Police who have generously agreed to support this project by making available the resources of their agency, including their helicopter. This program is already up and running in neighboring Otsego County and will be operational in ours effective December 15, 2008.
