Colorado Life Trak

Life Track Logo
The Lakewood Police Department has joined other law enforcement jurisdictions throughout the state, offering an aggressive and proven program to help save the lives of those prone to wandering.

Through these partnerships, specially trained teams use electronic monitoring technology to help locate and return lost or wandering adults and children to their families and caregivers.

The program is available in Lakewood to individuals caring for a family member in their private home.

How Does the Program Work?

  • A family member or caregiver contacts the Police Department to enroll the client.
  • The client wears a wristband that emits a tracking signal 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • The bracelet can be worn when bathing or showering so it doesn't have to be removed.
  • The caregiver is required to test the bracelet daily and log the results.
  • Caregivers notify the Police Department immediately if the participant wanders.
  • Once a client is reported missing, Police Dispatch will activate a search-and-rescue team trained to use the mobile-locator's tracking system. 

What Colorado Life Trak Offers

  • A reliable radio technology that provides tracking through a wristband worn by the participant.
  • Rapid response by trained rescue teams with tracking equipment when the participant wanders.
  • Reduced search times.

What Colorado Life Trak Offers The Community

  • Colorado Life Trak saves lives.
  • Reduces the need for extensive and costly search-and-rescue operations.
  • Recovery times are greatly reduced.
  • Helps bring peace of mind to caregivers and family.
