Take Me Home is a database developed by the Pensacola Police Department for people who may need special assistance if they are alone or in times of emergency. This kind of assistance may be required if the person is unable to speak or properly identify themselves, or if they become disoriented or act in a manner that could be misinterpreted by first responders. The system includes a current digital picture, demographic information, and caregiver contacts.
If a person in the Take Me Home system is encountered by a police officer, the officer can query the Take Me Home system, searching by name or by the person’s physical description. Once the individual’s Take Me Home record has been located the officer has the information at hand to appropriately assist the person.
Take Me Home helps loved ones with disabilities that make communicating with First Responders difficult when trying to find their way home. Disabilities can include, but is not limited to:
- Down Syndrome
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Other cognitive disabilities
