DuPage County Sheriff reminds residents of S.P.A.R.R. identification program

Published: Sunday, July 28, 2013 2:00 p.m. CDT

The DuPage County Sheriff's Office is reminding residents of a service available to assist those who may be at a greater risk of becoming confused, lost, disoriented or missing, according to a sheriff's office news release.

The Sheriff's Program for At Risk Residents, or S.P.A.R.R., allows residents to register themselves or an at risk family member with the sheriff's office in case of an emergency. The person's information, including a recent photograph, will be kept on file to assist emergency responders in locating that person if they are lost, the release said.

The participating person will be issued a bracelet with their personal S.P.A.R.R. number, which will be used to help searchers identify the lost participant.

To learn more about the program, contact the sheriff's office at 630-407-2400 or visit
