MHPD's Home Safe Program
Home Safe is a free service offered by the Maryland Heights Police Department that will help officers make contact and develop plans with those who have medical conditions or disabilities which can make effective communication challenging. It provides law enforcement with critical information about those registered that will enable them to sensitively and meaningfully respond to people with special needs should emergency situations potentially arise. All information provided is confidential and can only be accessed by a Maryland Heights Police Dispatcher or Officer in the case of an emergency.
How does Home Safe work?
Once registered, the Home Safe database provides the MHPD with quick access to critical information about a registered person with disabilities or medical conditions in case they get lost or wander away. If an officer finds someone who cannot communicate where they live, the officer can search the database by description and return the person to their home and loved ones safely.
You can sign yourself or your loved ones up for the Home Safe program by contacting Officer Terry Mancusi at email@example.com or accessing the registration link below. Additionally, the MHPD is able to meet in-person with those applying. Meeting an officer in a safe and comfortable setting (of your choice) will allow the individual to introduce themselves, ask questions and make a friend. Those interested can contact Officer Mancusi at here or by email. At that time, please let us know if there are any sensory issues or specific behaviors that we should be aware of.
Who is eligible for Home Safe?
All members of our community with a disability, special needs or other medical/sensory conditions that may have challenges communicating are encouraged to register for Home Safe.
What should I do if my loved one goes missing?
Call 9-1-1 immediately and explain your loved one's medical condition or special needs. If they are enrolled in Home Safe, please let the dispatcher know when you call. If your loved one is not registered with our Home Safe program, please make sure you have the following information on hand to provide to the dispatcher and arriving officers:
If they can verbally communicate, or how they communicate
What names are they responsive to
Their medication needs
Places they are most likely to visit
If they are afraid of noises, loud sounds, being touched, etc...
