Colorado Life Trak
Colorado Life Trak is a radio transmission system designed to assist law enforcement and rescue agencies in locating a lost or missing person who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, autism, dementia, or other disorders that may prohibit them from communicating personal information such as who they are or where they live. This program is designed for children and adults who have the propensity to wander from their homes and who may get lost.
Colorado Life Trak is a coordinated county-wide project partnering county and municipal law enforcement and emergency response agencies. Colorado Life Trak can help provide peace of mind to caregivers. However, it does not replace the need for supervised care.
The transmitter is a small circular radio device on a wristband, approximately the size of a wristwatch. The transmitters and wristbands are worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are difficult to remove without the appropriate tools. If the participant becomes lost or missing, the Boulder County Sheriff's Office and the Longmont Emergency Unit and other emergency response services have specialized tracking equipment to help isolate the location of the transmitter the participant is wearing. The search will start from the last known location of the transmitter the participant is wearing and work outward until the transmission signal is obtained. The goal is to determine the location of the signal in a quick, timely manner, minimizing the risk of harm to the loved one.
A donation of $250.00 is requested upon initial enrollment to help defray the cost of equipment. However, for those who are not in a financial position to contribute, the equipment may be waived after review. Once on the program, participants are asked to pay a $10 monthly maintenance fee to pay for the cost of replacement batteries and wristbands.
