The Nassau County Police Department has launched its R.E.A.C.H. (Return Every Adult and Child Home) Program for Nassau residents. This new and innovative program provides a registry for individuals who suffer from a cognitive disorder (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, Autism, etc.) should they go missing.
When law enforcement is notified of a missing loved one, the NCPD will send a photo and pertinent information to the NCPD’s Real Time Intel (RTI) System. RTI is designed to deliver timely intelligence to law enforcement officials so that it can be viewed in every precinct, squad, patrol car, and many villages. Additionally, the media will be notified and the search information will be disseminated through the County’s Silver Alert program.
The person being registered must be present at the time of registration. No medical records are necessary. Please be prepared to discuss whether the registrant has medical conditions that may require immediate treatment if he/she were to go missing.
If you are unable to attend the Registration Event, please call the Nassau County Police Department at 573-5775 (Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:00pm) to set up an appointment.
As always, you can reach Legislator Walker at 571-6217
or County Executive Mangano at 571-3131 for additional assistance
