MedicAlert Connect Protect Service
Orangeville Police Service Partners with Medic Alert Connect Protect Service
Our existing vulnerable person registry has been well received by the community and we are pleased that through this new partnership with Medic Alert we can lead the way in increasing the safety of people living with Alzheimer’s, dementia, a cognitive brain injury, autism or other health risks and return them to their families as quickly as possible.
This new partnership provides Orangeville police officers with direct access to personal and caregiver information relating to some of Orangeville’s most vulnerable citizens through their MedicAlert ID bracelets. In an emergency, this new service, called MedicAlert Connect Protect, gives police officers direct 24-hour access to a registered MedicAlert member’s photo, identity and medical information through their MedicAlert ID. Connect Protect helps officers with information to conduct their search more efficiently, ensuring those who have gone missing are reunited with their loved ones sooner.
