SPECIAL NEEDS/SILVER ALERT PROGRAM
The Suffolk County Police Department is pleased to inform you of the availability of our Special Needs/Silver Alert program. This free program enables relatives or caregivers to register persons with special needs in the Police Department’s database. This information will be furnished to first responders and police officers responding to an emergency situation involving the registrant.
Special Needs/Silver Alert program is designed for people with:
- Dementia (including Alzheimer’s Disease)
- Developmental Disabilities (including Autism Spectrum, Mental Retardation/Mental Impairment)
- Severe Mental Illness
- Other cognitive disorders that may impair reasoning, resulting in a person wandering or being disoriented/lost
Registrants can also request to receive an identification bracelet by checking the box on the Special Needs/Silver Alert Registry form. The bracelet is free of charge and contains a distinctive I.D. number as well as a Suffolk County Police Department phone number which first responders can utilize to obtain information regarding that person.
