Chief rolls out a new prgram


At tonight’s Selectman Meeting, the Brookline Police, Chief Daniel O’Leary will be announcing our participation in a new program the Brookline Homesafe Program. The program is aimed at assisting people who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and children and adults with developmental disorders who are at risk of wandering. The program utilizes the latest tracking technology. Participants in the program are issued a bracelet that is worn 24 hours a day and is capable of emitting a radio frequency signal. Should the participant wander or become lost, the Brookline Police can track the signal. Other communities are currently using the SafetyNet technology and have had success locating lost participants in the program. The Brookline Homesafe Program is a collaborative effort between the Brookline Police, the Brookline Community Mental Health Center, and Brookline Council on Aging. For information on the program please contact the Brookline Police Community Service Division, The Brookline Community Mental Health Center. Further information on the SafetyNet Program can be obtained at or by calling 1-877-4-FIND-THEM (1-877-434-6384).
