Thank you for taking the initiative to be a part of the North Arlington Safely Back Home Program
Safely Back Home™ is an innovative program that provides additional peace of mind to families and caregivers of people who wander. The Safely Back Home™ patent-pending process uses ID information imprinted on personal garments to help the public and the police assist an individual who has become lost.
The Safely Back Home™ Program was developed in response to a need to provide assistance to individuals who are incapable of providing identifying information in situations where they become lost.
When an individual who wanders and appears lost is wearing a Safely Back Home™ imprinted garment, the concerned person who notices them can quickly contact NAPD with location details and a rescue ensues.
The Safely Back Home™ program enables police and first responders to understand how to communicate effectively with your family member, allowing your family member to remain calm during their rescue.
Families/Caregivers provide medical and personal information about the family member. All information remains confidential and privacy protected. Wherever your family member is wandering (in NJ/USA) – police departments are able to electronically share this information in coordinating the rescue.
The enrollment application should be filled out by the family member/caregiver (the Authorized Representative) on behalf of the individual (the Applicant) who will be enrolled in the NAPD Safely Back Home program. Providing this detailed information in advance of any need ensures an efficient and speedy response by Emergency Services personnel. Please be as thorough and complete as possible.
Upon receipt and review of the enrollment application, a NAPD Safely Back Home ID number specific only to the applicant will be issued. The family member/caregiver will receive this NAPD Safely Back Home ID# via email. The family member/caregiver will also receive notification that the application has been accepted.
IMPORTANT: All information submitted on the enrollment form will be kept confidential and stored in a secure database maintained by the NAPD.
