Care Trak Program

About the Program

The Lockport Police Department has implemented the Care Trak Rescue Program. This program allows family members to track loved ones who are impaired and have a history of wandering away from home. Care Trak Rescue is a mobile tracking system that uses a radio frequency wrist band to locate lost individuals. When an individual wearing a transmitter is reported missing, the local certified Care Trak Rescue law enforcement agency can start the search using a radio tracking system. The tracking system has a range of up to one mile.
