The Prairie du Chien Police Department recognizes the importance of time in tracking a wandering and vulnerable loved one. So, in an effort to efficiently serve and protect the citizens of Prairie du Chien, a new, voluntary registry is being offered through which family members can register loved ones who are residents of Prairie du Chien and suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia.

The Alzheimer’s and Dementia Registry can provide pertinent and critical information regarding your loved ones, which would aid law enforcement in identifying your family member, should they wander from their place of residence and come into contact with police officers. Additionally, having the information readily available enables the department to provide this information to surrounding agencies in an efficient manner in hopes to quickly locating and safely returning your loved one. The information provided will be kept at the police department and used solely as a means to aid law enforcement and other emergency personnel in locating missing and/or wandering residents.

This program is strictly voluntary. It is designed to assist the Prairie du Chien Police Department in the swift and safe recovery of your loved one. 

A photograph will be taken by the officer who comes to your house. This photograph and data will be entered into the database at the Prairie du Chien Police Department. In the event that a loved one wanders away, the police department will already have all the necessary information needed to conduct a thorough and extensive search. This relieves the family of having to attempt to locate the pertinent information during a time of stress, and allows the family to focus on locating the loved one.
