TRUMBULL, Conn. -- The Trumbull Police Department has enrolled in Project Lifesaver to track missing people with dementia or other cognitive problems, according to the Connecticut Post.

Sgt. Brian Falkenstein told the Connecticut Post that sometimes people who have dementia will go for a walk and get lost. The program gives these individuals a wristband that can be used to track their whereabouts, Connecticut Post reported.

More than 1,400 police, fire and other emergency responders participate in Project Lifesaver. The program began in Chespeake, Va. in 1999, said the Connecticut Post.
