safe & found wa

Safe & Found WA is an initiative introduced by Western Australia Police Force  and Australia Medic Alert Foundation, dedicated to assisting Police in locating persons who may be at risk of becoming lost or reported missing.

It is estimated that 6 out of 10 people living with dementia will wander at least once.

Safe & Found supports people living with dementia or a cognitive impairment who might be at risk of becoming lost or reported as missing, by ensuring Police have immediate access to critical information to assist when undertaking search operations.

A detailed profile outlining your personal history and characteristics is completed ahead of time, and kept securely along with a recent photo, on the Safe & Found database for Police to access immediately if you go missing. This information is key to a fast response and a safe return.

A Safe & Found ID bracelet is included with your membership to protect you when you're out in public. Your bracelet is engraved with the details needed to return you to safety should you appear lost or disoriented.
