What is Project Lifesaver?

The York Regional Police Project Lifesaver program combines radio technology with a coordinated police response to assist in locating wandering and disoriented loved ones.

Participants in the Project Lifesaver program wear a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal. The wristband is a one ounce, battery-operated wrist transmitter emitting an FM radio frequency-based signal that emits a signal every second, 24 hours a day. When caregivers notify York Regional Police their loved one is missing, a Search and Rescue team responds to the area where the person was last seen using a mobile location tracking system

This program has proven to be reliable, responsive, practical and affordable.

Project Lifesaver can only succeed with strong community partnerships. York Regional Police is proud to partner with:

Project Lifesaver is also supported by York Regional Police volunteers. Their continuous commitment and support to the participants and their families contributes greatly to its success.
