Wandering/Vulnerable Person Registry

About the Program

The New Windsor Police Department is now offering a voluntary registry for persons prone to wandering and members of vulnerable populations. This includes, but is not limited to, those with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, autism, traumatic brain injury, or any other type of special needs or physical or mental disability. The program is designed to obtain valuable information from family and loved ones in case of an emergency. This information will allow officers to quickly and efficiently handle any incident that may arise. Our goal is to promote community safety, improve officer safety, increase the efficiency of operations, and give community members some peace of mind for loved ones that may be prone to wandering.

This registry can provide relevant and pertinent information which will aid our department in identifying your family member should they wander from their residence and come into contact with our officers. Time is of the essence and having this information on hand will allow us to best serve the community and prevent any further unneeded stress on everybody involved.

Participation in this program is completely voluntary. Information provided will be kept at the Police Department and only used when necessary to identify or locate a missing or wandering person.
