POUGHKEEPSIE – The Poughkeepsie City Police Department teamed up with MedicAlert Foundation to offer a free program aimed at protecting residents with dementia and autism who are at risk for wandering emergencies.
The police department will now be able to enroll city residents and their caregivers, via an online portal, into the MedicAlert national registry database to receive a free medical identification bracelet and free 24/7 emergency support services.
“We are fortunate to be able to provide this service to some of our most vulnerable residents,” said Mayor Robert Rolison.
Families interested in obtaining a free medical ID should contact Christopher Bodin at the Poughkeepsie Police Department at 845-451-4104 or visit http://cityofpoughkeepsie.com/police-department/medicalert .
