Ensuring Vulnerable Individuals and First Responders Get Home Safely

A neighborhood shown with profile boxes above the homes.

Welcome to SafeEncounter, the revolutionary community safety tool designed to help law enforcement get at-risk individuals home safely. Family, friends, and loved ones can create a profile for any dependents with intellectual disabilities, severe mental health issues, or non-verbal communication styles. Using secure and innovative technology, SafeEncounter can communicate specific needs, even when your loved one cannot.

For Those Who Wander

SafeEncounter’s mission is to return vulnerable individuals home safely in times of emergency. Wandering is an extremely common symptom of cognitive disorders, intellectual disabilities, and severe mental health issues. From children to senior citizens, loved ones with these medical conditions are at risk of getting lost. SafeEncounter allows family members to create a profile for free on the database that is then accessible to the district’s police department.

If an individual wanders away from home, law enforcement can refer to the database to identify the individual, learn more about any health conditions, prepare for how they react to various triggers, and pinpoint popular locations they frequent.

Editable Accounts

Accounts can be edited at any time. If an individual receives a new diagnosis, if new symptoms arise, or if physical appearance changes, the family can update that information so it’s up-to-date.

Police Vehicle Access

Law enforcement can access the database from police vehicle computers 24/7. There’s no need for a binder of information back at the office, simply search the database at the scene.

Comprehensive Dependent Information

User profiles include identifying descriptions, images, medical history, and more to give law enforcement a better understanding of the individual. 

Who is Eligible?

Districts and states can determine their eligibility requirements per system. SafeEncounter was designed specifically for those who have communication-based health issues. In times of crisis, these people cannot always provide police with information they need, so the SafeEncounter database can be used in lieu of verbal conversation. Conditions that SafeEncounter can be most useful for include Alzheimer’s Dementia, Down’s Syndrome, Autism, Schizophrenia, and Severe Bipolar Disorder.  

With comprehensive dependent profiles, loved ones can create a profile on behalf of a dependent and provide critical information to help police identify and take care of a found person. Profiles give users the option to include: 

      • Photos of the dependent 
      • Medical conditions/history 
      • Common places they may wander to 
      • Emergency contact information 
      • Physical description 
      • Information about how to safely deescalate a situation 
      • Triggers and Symptoms 
      • And more

    Coming Together with Cross-District Communication

    When law enforcement is aware of vulnerable members of the community, they can better protect them. SafeEncounter offers registrant mapping to display profiles on a map in their geographic location. First responders can look through the map view to quickly see how far someone has wandered from home.

    SafeEncounter allows registrants to select which districts they want to authorize to see a dependent’s profile. When implemented across districts, police departments can communicate much more rapidly when an individual is found wandering.

    This feature is particularly useful for dependents known to travel long distances, those with multiple homes or places they regularly stay at, and those near district lines. Law enforcement does not need to call around, rather, they can search the SafeEncounter database as normal.
