Alzheimer's patients and those with cognitive brain issues can become disoriented, sometimes wandering off and becoming lost.
The Culpeper County Sheriff's Office is preparing for just an instance.
The CCSO hosted recertification and training for the Project Lifesaver program, which allows those with cognitive brain issues to wear a transmitter device that will help them be located in the event they would become lost.
It's a program the sheriff's office has participated in for several years, said CCSO deputy David Myers, program coordinator for Project Lifesaver.
