Miami Township, Ohio – The Take Me Home program is a database that is only accessible to law enforcement and emergency personnel. The database includes a picture, disability information, physical description, emergency contact information, and map of all registered individuals. If a person in the Take Me Home program is encountered alone by a police officer, or is reported missing, the officer can access the database by the person’s name or description to locate their enrollment record. With this information at hand, the officer can appropriately assist your loved one.
How Does Take Me Home Work?
In the event an enrollee is contacted and an officer has reason to believe they may be a candidate for Take Me Home, the officer can access our database to identify the person and better assist them. If there is a match to their database, an emergency contact will be notified immediately to let them know their loved one has been found. If a loved one enrolled in Take Me Home goes missing call 911 as soon as you can and inform the police dispatcher of the individual’s enrollment in Miami Township’s Take Me Home program.
