rapid search response to vulnerable adults and children

Sudbury Police Service

SUDBURY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~ September 17, 2020 (LSN)  The Greater Sudbury Police Service is proud to partner with Project Lifesaver® International (PLI) in our efforts to provide rapid search response to vulnerable adults and children who wander due to neurocognitive disorders or intellectual or developmental disabilities. Our goal is two-fold. One is to use state of the art technology to assist in locating missing persons quickly and efficiently and the second is to ease the mind of caregivers who are trying to cope with wandering behaviours.  Thunder Bay, Sudbury, North Bay 

Project Lifesaver was founded in 1999 in Chesapeake, Virginia and is recognized internationally as a proven and effective method of “bringing loved ones home.” Today, over 1,200 agencies throughout the United States, Canada and Australia have partnered with Project Lifesaver. To date, over 3,721 people have been rescued through Project Lifesaver.

PLI® provides an evolution within our coordinated service delivery model with an aim to provide a timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury in situations involving missing persons.

The Project Lifesaver® system includes providing transmitters, wristbands and batteries to those at risk.

Once enrolled, a member of the Greater Sudbury Police Service or Project Lifesaver® partner will schedule an appointment to attach the wristband unit and train a caregiver in how the equipment works.


Three basic components:

· Personal Locator Unit (transmitter and battery)

  • · Receiver
  • · Antenna

The Personal Locator Unit (PLU) has a ground tracking range of 1.6 km range, and an aerial range of 8-11 kms. It has a 30 or 60 day battery life. Intensity of received signal with increase as distance to PLU decreases.
