This program is designed to get information to police officers about missing elderly or disabled persons as quickly as possible to assist officers in locating your loved ones.
This is a free voluntary program that allows relatives or caregivers to register people who tend to wander away from their homes due to:
- Downs Syndrome
- or other debilitating illness.
The information collected in this program is to assist officers in the search for missing persons:
- person’s name,
- physical description,
- special needs,
- favorite places he or she might go to,
- and other pertinent information.
This information will:
- allow officers to quickly identify the reported missing person and take him or her home.
- assist police when they encounter someone in the field who appears to be lost or confused.
Information provided will be accessed only by the police. The Return Home Registry is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and does not collect or disseminate medical information.
This program does not guarantee the safe return of your loved ones, but it will provide officers with an additional tool to locate and return your loved one.
To add someone to the Fullerton Return Home Registry or obtain more information call the Community Services Bureau of the Fullerton Police Department at (714) 738-6836.
The Return Home Registry is patterned after a similar program conducted by Irvine police.
