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.
