The Take Me Home Program maintains a database of persons who may need assistance due to special needs. The information in the database includes a picture, demographic information, and at least three caregiver contacts.
If an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Deputy encounters someone who can not identify themselves or where they belong or if they are in a crisis, the deputy searches for the individual by name, physical description, age, sex, or agency in the Take Me Home Program database. With the information at hand, the officer can appropriately assist the person.
The Take Me Home Program database is maintained by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, Bridgeway Center, the Mental Health Association, and the Okaloosa County School District.
