Project H.O.M.E. (Help Our Missing and Endangered Persons) helps first responders identify children or adults who are unable to communicate their names or addresses due to a cognitive impairment. To enroll, the special needs individual (or his/her caregiver) can complete an information sheet and submit a photo to Allen Police Department. Records technicians input the photo, physical descriptions and other information into our RMS.
If the individual is found wandering, police can search the database for individuals who match the physical description. With photo identification, medical information and emergency contacts easily accessible, police can return the individual to caregivers quickly and safely.
