Take Me Home
Take Me Home is a regional registry for people who may need special assistance if they are alone or in times of emergency. This kind of assistance may be required if the person is unable to speak or properly identify themselves, or if they become disoriented or act in a manner that could be misinterpreted by first responders. If a person in the Take Me Home system is encountered by a deputy sheriff, law enforcement can query the Take Me Home system, searching by name or by the person’s physical description. The Take Me Home information can be provided to deputies in the field to best assist the person.
There is no charge to enroll in the Take Me Home program. To best serve your loved ones, there is a responsibility and commitment to keep the registry information updated.
The program is designed to assist Law Enforcement agencies during contacts with members of the community who have disabilities such as, but not limited to, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Down syndrome, and other developmental and intellectual disabilities, to ensure the special needs person's safe return home.
Law Enforcement can use this system when he or she comes in contact with an individual that appears to have special needs and/or is not able to communicate. And there may not be a missing person's report on them yet. The field unit can search participants within the proximity of the contact, using geolocation technology, to find information on where the individual may reside, a contact person, a photograph and additional information such as calming techniques, or communication ideas to make the person’s experience pleasant and to get him or her returned home in a timely and safe manner.
