Families can apply on behalf of their loved ones.
"It's a bracelet program that we're able to put on people who tend to wander such as Alzheimer's patients or kids with autism," said Oneida County Sheriff Grady Hartman.
Clients who wear the bracelet transmit a signal at all times. That signal can then be specifically picked up by a tracking device.
"It's actually used by a radio frequency. So it has a radio frequency number. And on the tracking device, we actually program that in," said Emergency Management Director Ken Kortenhof.
The county started looking into Project Lifesaver earlier this year. The Oneida County Sheriff's Office says this program will help families keep their loved ones safe.
