Local News

PEPIN COUNTY, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The Pepin County Sheriff’s Office received training on a new way to help keep people with a cognitive disability, such as Alzheimer’s disease safe.

Project Lifesaver is an international organization using radiofrequency to find people who are lost.

If they are reported missing, law enforcement agencies can use receivers to pick up the sound and help find them.

A trainer with project lifesaver says this technology can shorten the search time from hours to minutes.
