Care Trak


Care Trak is a program of the Norman Police Department in partnership with Sunbeam Family Services to help families who care for loved ones with Alzheimer's Disease, dementia, autism, Down syndrome, or other cognitive impairments. Care Trak is a bracelet designed to be an additional resource to locate at-risk individuals who have wandered off or gone missing. Care Trak has been used nationally since 1986, and with it thousands of missing persons have been located.

The bracelet looks similar to a watch and can be worn on a wrist or ankle. The bracelets are waterproof and include a thick band which can only be removed by a caregiver. In the event that your loved one goes missing, the bracelet will emit a radio frequency that can be picked up by the Norman Police Department's radio receiver, which helps officers find the missing person.
