May 02, 2013:  Tracking System Now Available

                                                                                                                 Green County Care Trak

May 2nd, 2013
 
Thanks to an extremely generous $7,000 donation from the Green County Fall Nationals organization, along with a donation from an Albany couple, the Green County Sheriff’s Department has acquired equipment and training that will allow deputies to track individuals that have wandered from their homes. 
 
Effective immediately, the Green County Sheriff’s Department will be taking applications from county residents that care for individuals that have a documented diagnosis of: Autism, Alzheimer’s, Dementia or a Developmental Disability and has a history or high risk of wandering. If approved, trained Green County Sheriff’s deputies will come to the caregiver’s home and fit the participant with a wristband that can be used to track their whereabouts if they ever become lost or missing. This unique wristband is a heavy duty, waterproof band that emits a tracking signal. Using specialized equipment, this signal can be tracked by our specially trained personnel and the equipment has a range of up to about one mile, depending on terrain. Deputies will need to visit the participant’s home every two months to change batteries in the wristband. Deputies from all shifts have been trained in operating the tracking equipment. Participants must live in Green County and will be selected on a case by case basis.
 
To receive an application, caregivers should contact the Green County Care Trak coordinator, Deputy Bernie Roidt. Deputy Roidt works the 3:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. shift and may be contacted by leaving a message with the Green County Sheriff’s Department communication center at (608)328-9400/Option #1. Any additional inquiries may be directed to Sheriff Jeff Skatrud at (608)328-9577.
