What's Happening at The Porter County Sheriff's Department


Triad Safety Beacon

On Friday, 11-19-04 Chief David Lain was a guest on the afternoon talk show on radio station WJOB (1230 AM) and WIMS (1420 AM). He talked about The Sheriff's Department's support of and involvement with Porter County Triad, an advocacy group addressing the needs of seniors. Chief Lain announced that thanks to the generosity of Mr. Brian Busch, the owner of Range Master Outfitters in Chesteron, Triad will soon be able to implement Project Lifesaver. That program will allow specially trained Sheriff's officers to electronically locate missing seniors who are issued a wristwatch sized transmitter. The photo shows another of Triad's endeavors, the Safety Beacon give-away program. These special bulbs can be installed at the homes of seniors who would then be able to activate a flashing mode in order to assist emergency responders in finding their house.
