Cheltenham Police have added an important tool to their department: the LoJack SafetyNet program.
The Montgomery News reports the program helps to locate people with cognitive disabilities who may become lost or have a tendency to wander away.
Participants in the program wear a small bracelet that sends a radio signal once every second. Officers, who are available 24 hours a day, use specialized equipment to track the participant.
According to The Montgomery News, Cheltenham is one of the first suburban police departments in the area to participate in the program.
