Programs for Seniors
Colorado Life Trak
- A family member or caregiver of an at-risk child or at-risk adult contacts the Arvada Police Department to enroll in Colorado Life Trak.
- Participants wear a small, personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal 24 hours a day, seven days a week, over several miles.
- When needed, a search and rescue team responds to a missing persons call and uses a mobile locator tracking system to find the Colorado Life Trak participant.
Colorado Life Trak is a nationally-recognized radio transmission system designed to help police and rescue agencies locate at-risk people. The program is designed for children and adults who have the propensity to wander from their homes and who may get lost. Examples include older adults with Alzheimer's disease and children with Down’s Syndrome or autism. Colorado Life Trak is available at the Arvada Police Department to help families whose loved ones are at risk of wandering. For further information, or to enroll, please contact the Arvada Police Department Elder Abuse Detective or download the Colorado Life Trak Brochure (PDF).
