The Brockville Police Service (BPS) is looking to help officers quickly locate lost or missing vulnerable individuals.

BPS say the partnership between them and MedicAlert Foundation Canada will help BPS and The Gananoque Police Service officers reunite lost, wandering, and vulnerable individuals with their families.

Staff Sargeant Andrew Harvie says they are pleased to announce the partnership and quick access to important information will help them better protect the most vulnerable citizens. BPS add, officers called to an emergency involving a MedicAlert subscriber will have access to vital information which could save a life.

Individuals who may use MedicAlert include people living with autism, Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other cognitive brain injuries.

MedicAlert will be holding a registration session in Brockville following the launch of the MedicAlert Connect Protect initiative. The public can learn more and sign up themselves or a loved one.

The registration will take place on Tuesday at St. Lawrence Lodge on 1803 County Road two East in Brockville. The event will happen from 9:45 to noon that day and the launch will happen at ten.

Thanks to BPS and MedicAlert Foundation Canada, the first 20 new MedicAlert subscribers will get their first-year service plan and a MedicAlert ID at no cost.
