Operation SAFE CHILD

The Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office is an active participant in the Operation SAFE CHILD program. This free program provides parents or legal guardians with a card that contains their child’s vital information, including date of birth, gender, height, weight and eye color, along with a photograph and fingerprint images of both index fingers. From start to finish, the entire process takes less than two minutes.

All over the county throughout the year, the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office participates in social events to promote the program and enroll as many children as possible.

To enroll your child, please attend one of our scheduled events or contact Deputy Susan Alvarado at (315) 253-1087.

Project Lifesaver

The Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office is a proud member of Project Lifesaver.  Together with the Cayuga County Office for the Aging, the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office participates in this program designed to assist families who have a family member that has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Autism or Down’s Syndrome.  This program requires the diagnosed individual wear a bracelet that is equipped with a transmitter, where in the event he/she wanders and becomes lost or missing, the Sheriff’s Department, who maintains a receiver, will be able to assist with locating this person.

For more information, please contact the program’s administrator, Corinne Ryan at the Cayuga County Office for the Aging at (315) 253-1104.
