Loved Ones Safe and Together

L.O.S.T. (Loved Ones Safe and Together) is a law enforcement program in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association and Greater Iowa Chapter.  The L.O.S.T. Program is an innovative way to assist police in locating and identifying persons suffering from Alzheimer’s or any other medical conditions, which could result in them becoming lost.

The L.O.S.T. program is a computer database that contains information about the person such as:
  • name
  • address
  • physical description
  • birth date
  • photograph
  • any additional helpful information
