The Greensboro Police Department is participating in Take Me Home

The Greensboro Police Department is participating in Take Me Home, a free program that allows family members and legal guardians to provide critical information for individuals with a cognitive impairment or developmental disability.

In the event someone registered in the program encounters law enforcement or is reported missing, law enforcement and emergency services personnel can search for emergency contact information, detailed physical description and a photo of the individual, saving valuable time in returning the person home.

The Take Me Home program is helpful for people who are nonverbal or easily disoriented. This includes those who suffer from autism, dementia, deafness, Alzheimer’s and other developmental disabilities. The program is strictly voluntary and not limited by age or disability. All data is confidential and only accessible by city of Greensboro public safety personnel.
