VERNON PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

The Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office is holding signup for Project Loved One, an effort to provide services to individuals who suffer from neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's, dementia or any mental impairment.

According to Sheriff's Office authorities, the service is free and will not only assist local law enforcement, but any law enforcement agency that may come into contact with a person who has previously registered for the program. 

Authorities said the service is available to all age groups. 

"The program was designed to assist any person or family with a loved one who for any reason may become lost or wonder away from where they are supposed to be, said Vernon Parish Sheriff Sam Craft.

"A family member of the person, or a concerned adult, can contact the Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office at 337-238-7248 to schedule an appointment to register their loved one. All registrations will be conducted by appointment," Craft added.

Authorities said once an appointment is scheduled, the individual will be fingerprinted, photographed and a detailed summary of their medical history and emergency contact information will be obtained.

This information will be kept on file with the Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office in case the person becomes lost while traveling or away from their residence.
