Fort Bend County Sheriffs Office “Take Me Home” Program
 
Forum Image
 
Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office have launched the “Take Me Home” program, aimed to help residents with cognitive disabilities such as Autism, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Down Syndrome, etc., communicate with law enforcement officers.
 
Who is the eligible?
 
Fort Bend County residents with a cognitive impairment or disability that may affect their ability to communicate.
 
Individuals that tend to be at risk for wandering may include people with disabilities such as Alzheimer's, Autism, Dementia, Down Syndrome etc.
 
Individuals who do NOT qualify for enrollment include people with ONLY physical disabilities, hearing impairment, vision impairment, anyone who is able to communicate via translator/interpreter and children who have not reached a developmentally appropriate age for speech.
 
They require anyone enrolling an individual/themselves be either a family member or legal guardian of the individual.
 
How does it work?
 
This information is placed in a database that can be accessed in a police vehicle or back at the station. If Law Enforcement Officers find someone who can’t communicate where he/she lives, they can search the database by description and return the person to their loved ones. The system also works in reverse — if a loved one goes missing, their picture and description are immediately available.
 
Take Me Home is voluntary for citizens who participate, and all information is kept confidential.
