Project Lifesaver Program

August 31, 2019

The Bennington County Sheriff's Department continues Project Lifesaver Program.

Update on the latest program that Sheriff Chad Schmidt has implemented at the Bennington County Sheriff's Office. Project Lifesaver is a countywide emergency response locator service capable of finding individuals diagnosed with cognative impairments which may cause them to wander or become lost.

On Tuesday, August 27, 2019, Sgt. Bravata and Lt. Howard presented and demonstrated this program to a handful of individuals at Bennington Project Independence. A special thanks to Social Worker, Melissa Stemp for putting this together. Lt. Howard is not pictured as he and K9 Millie were needed elsewhere!

If you have a loved that meets the criteria and are interested in this program, or are interested and not sure of the criteria contact Sergeant Bravata for further information.

Detective Sergeant, Lloyd Dean
