Project Lifesaver provides peace of mind...

Caregivers responsible for the safety of loved ones with Alzheimer's, dementia, autism or other disorders, often live in fear that they will wander off and become lost. Project Lifesaver has eased that fear for many Baldwin and Mobile County residents. The program is designed to track participants who are traveling on foot; however, it also has proved to be an asset when other scenarios arise. Project Lifesaver maintains individual profiles that include vital statistics on its enrolled participants that are readily available if they wander and become lost.

In 2010, the Sheriff's Office hosted two camps. One located in Bay Minette and the other in Robertsdale. We felt holding two camps we could reach more kids. The results of two camps had us considering three for 2011; and that's just we did. In 2011, the Sheriff's Office began holding three camps to reach as many kids in Baldwin County as we possibly could. The three camps were located in: Bay Minette, Robertsdale, and Fairhope.

Project Lifesaver is the nation's most effective program for locating and rescuing individuals that wander and are missing. In 1999, the Chesapeake, Va., Sheriff's Office and the 43rd Virginia Search and Rescue Company began Project Lifesaver, which now operates in 35 states and Canada. Baldwin County is Alabama's fifth county to participate in this program.

The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office Shining Star Camp helps to build life skills, instill confidence and develop self-esteem. The curriculum includes a wide range of activities that incorporates teamwork, physical fitness, and general Sheriff information. We emphasize the importance of physical and mental fitness and teach good citizenship. The Sheriff's Office strives to provide a positive learning experience for children during their summer break. The program is structured to be fun, informative and challenging. It even incorporates a family fun day with a certificate ceremony to give parents, grandparents and guardians the opportunity to share in the experience of what their children have learned through their participation in the camp.
