OCSD Launches Program to Reunite At-Risk Missing Persons with Family

Yorba Linda residents can now participate in "Take Me Home," a new regional registry to assist families and caregivers of those who have certain medical conditions, special needs, or disabilities that may make communication with law enforcement difficult.

Take Me Home is a free program that will assist those with dementia, Alzheimer’s, autism, Down syndrome, or any developmental disability or medical condition that might impact an individual’s ability to effectively communicate. The registry, which will be accessible only by law enforcement, will assist Sheriff’s Department personnel by maximizing search efforts and minimizing response time. The registry will allow critical information that could assist in locating the missing individual to be quickly disseminated to law enforcement. Information including emergency contact information, known routines and behaviors, calming techniques and an up-to-date photograph can be submitted to Take Me Home.

In addition, Take Me Home can serve as a tool to help Orange County Sheriff’s Department (OCSD) personnel in responding to calls for service. If making contact with a registrant in the field, at a care facility, or at a residence, deputies can better understand how to approach an individual with communication challenges. This program will be available for Yorba Linda residents in the coming month.

Learn more about the program by viewing the video or downloading the Take Me Home Brochure (PDF).

Enroll for the program.
