Ross Township Police Participates with the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office in Project Lifesaver. The program was founded in 1998 and was designed to locate citizens with special conditions when they become lost or wander away from home.
Persons enrolled wear a small transmitter that emits a tracking signal that can be picked up by trained public safety personnel that are out searching for them. Residents of Allegheny County who are caregivers can enroll on behalf of a person with Alzheimer’s disease, other forms of dementia, Down’s Syndrome, Autism or other disabilities, as well as veterans who suffer from PTSD.
Ross Police have 3 trained officers who participate in this program and can also assist in signing up eligible individuals. Residents can also contact the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office at 412-350-4401 for additional information.
