Nassau County Police Department Commissioner Patrick J. Ryder will join local senior citizens to discuss the steps to take if an elder adult or child goes missing. Dozens of local senior residents will be attending the annual Senior Health Fair throughout the day, which is offering identification services, such as identifications cards and fingerprinting, for loved ones at risk of wandering.
NCPD R.E.A.C.H. (Return Every Adult and Child Home) Program for Nassau residents is an innovative program that provides a registry for individuals who suffer from cognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, Autism, etc., and takes preventative measures for locating the individual should they go missing. When law enforcement is notified of a missing loved one, the NCPD will send a photo and pertinent information to the NCPD’s Real Time Intel (RTI) System. RTI is designed to deliver timely intelligence to law enforcement officials so that it can be viewed in every precinct, squad, patrol car, and many villages. Additionally, the media will be notified and the search information will be disseminated through the County’s Silver Alert Notification. Registration is free and you can make an appointment with the Asset Forfeiture Unit by calling 516-573-5775 if you are unable to attend the seminar.
ID Cards and the NCPD Reach Program will drastically reduce time it may take to find a missing parent, neighbor or friend.
