“Bringing loved ones home” is DeWitt County Project Lifesaver’s mission statement and true goal. That goal will be easier to obtain thanks to a donation from the Pilot Club of Cuero on Tuesday, Nov. 12. The $2,160.00 donation will pay for four separate one-year subscriptions to Project Lifesaver.

Project Lifesaver is a 501c3  community based, public safety, non-profit organization that provides law enforcement, fire/rescue, and caregivers with a program designed to protect, and when necessary, quickly locate individuals with cognitive disorders who are prone to the life threatening behavior of wandering.

 The program was started in DeWitt County by former DeWitt County Sheriff Jode Zavesky while serving as Constable. PLS is a reliable rescue program for wandering victims of Alzheimer’s and related mental disorders.

PLS operates using locating technology that is worn by the person, or a GPS system that is attached to a vehicle. Currently, DeWitt County Sheriff Carl Bowen has made headway with the program, and gave an in-depth presentation to the Pilot Club on Tuesday.
