Just in Case

The Just In Case Program is a comprehensive county-wide registry of patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia-related disorders. As its name might suggest, the Just In Case Program functions as an emergency tool in the event that an individual wanders and becomes lost or disoriented. The Sheriff Office may then refer to the Just In Case database for easy identification in order to provide a quick and safe return of that individual.

This program is also used to identify people in our community living with disabilities. Registration in this program alerts the law enforcement to a person’s diagnosis and emergency contact, as well as what both calms and triggers the individual, so law enforcement officers can better respond to a person’s individualized needs during an encounter.

The program consists of a digital photo of the individual along with personal information (name, date of birth, address) along with emergency contact information and any important medical information. This information will be kept in the Sheriff’s Office database and remain confidential.

The Cheshire County Sheriff’s Office will accept registrations from residents of Cheshire County and Langdon, NH.

How to register
