Milford Police Announce LoJack Agreement

Milford Police will partner with LoJack in finding people who have wandered away from their homes or caregivers.

Editor's Note: the following press release was submitted by the Milford Police Department.

For a number of years, the maintained information that was voluntarily submitted by loved ones concerning family members who have special needs. This information would allow public safety officials to launch an immediate investigation and search should this person wander off.

The Milford Police Department has partnered with SafetyNet by LoJack to provide services to families who have loved ones with special needs.  

LoJack maintains a robust database that is updated regularly and can be accessed by public safety officials if an individual is reported missing. It also offers the SafetNet Bracelets which can be tracked by the tracker that LoJack provided to the Milford Police Department.

As a result of this partnership and the fact that family members and public safety officials can access information concerned with a particular individual who may have wandered, the Milford Police Department will no longer maintain the Special Needs Form information that we collected prior to the availability of the LoJack SafetyNet program.

Anyone that is interested in LoJack SafetyNet may contact them at 1-877-434-6384 or safetynetbylojack.com. The cost for this service is $1 per day.

Anyone that would like more information from the Milford Police Department concerning this program, may contact Officer Robbie Tusino at 508-473-1113 x 0 between the hours of 4 p.m. and midnight, or by email at rtusino@milfordpolice.org.

Great idea. However not all families can afford the bracelet or the monthly fee. What do they do now that the MPD no longer maintains the Special Needs form info?

Hi Andie, My name is Jennifer and I am the Customer Care Specialist at SafetyNet by LoJack. The monthly fee is literally a dollar a day like the article says! If someone still cannot afford our service, I ask that they still call us. It is my job to work with folks who cannot afford the service and look to match them up with funding from local organizations that are willing to help. I cannot promise anything but I will try! Please give us a call at 877-434-6384. Best, Jennifer
