The Huntsville Police Department is pleased to offer the community a helpful new service to give greater peace of mind to our city's senior and special needs population, their families, and caregivers. From time to time, our officers are called upon to assist a lost senior citizen or dependent person. Often these individuals are disoriented and unable to remember their names or where they live. They sometimes experience a long wait while the officers attempt to identify them and return them to their home.
Citizens of Huntsville can now register a family member with the police department by providing personal information, medical information, emergency contact numbers for relatives, and a photograph of the registrant. This will greatly aid the police department should an Alzheimer's or special needs person become missing or be found by the police and be unable to provide information.
To register a special needs person of any age, contact Huntsville Police Department Senior Officer Ryann Kaaa-Bauer about how to obtain the special needs registry form. All information will remain confidential and will only be accessed by law enforcement to locate or return a loved one. To download the forms for registering a loved one, please click here.
