The Benson Police Department is Now Utilizing the Take Me Home Database

Take Me Home is a database for people who may need special assistance if they are alone or in times of emergency (autism, dementia, Alzheimer's, etc.). This kind of assistance may be required if the person is unable to speak or properly identify themselves or if they become disoriented or act in a manner that could be misinterpreted by first responders. 

The system includes a current digital picture, demographic information and caregiver contacts. If a person in the Take Me Home system is encountered by a police officer, the officer can query the Take Me Home system, searching by name or by the person’s physical description. Once the individual’s Take Me Home record has been located the officer has the information at hand to appropriately assist the person.

 If you are interested in the Take Me Home database, you can view/print the registration form here:
