Helping to bring home america's missing loved ones
Minutes save lives. We save minutes.
NO COST TO FAMILIES
ID Me 911 is changing the way police agencies across the country conduct missing person investigations, making communication with communities easier.
Missing person notifications
Once a police officer completes their preliminary investigation, they can utilize the ID Me 911 App to send an instant missing person notification to all police officers in their agency, all police officers in a chosen radius, and community members. The notification will contain a photograph, name, physical description, and any other information that may be important to the investigation. *Community members will receive limited information to include name, physical description, and the name of the investigating agency. These notifications are much like AMBER Alerts but without the restrictions or time delays.
ID Me 911 created a secure network for families and caretakers to create profiles of their loved ones, especially those in a vulnerable population (children, aging seniors, those with cognitive impairments). Profiles include their name, physical description, photograph, information about their wandering habits, triggers, calming methods, and emergency contact information. In the event your loved one is reported missing, their profile can be printed and provided to police officers efficiently and accurately. This helps to reduce the chances of inadvertently providing inaccurate information due to stressful circumstances.
identify those unable to communicate
It is not uncommon for a police officer to encounter an individual who is unable to communicate with them due to a cognitive disability like Autism, Dementia, or a traumatic brain injury. In events like these, police officers can search the network with information they may have like a name, physical descriptors, or partial address. If the individual is registered in the network, the officer will be able to locate their profile which will include emergency contact information and ensure a quick return to their family or loved ones.
Community Member familiarization
Police Officers will be able to review profiles of those who have a tendency to wander. This allows them to become familiar with those individuals so officers can keep a watchful eye out for them as they patrol their neighborhoods.
You must create a User Account before registering a loved one. Once you have completed the profile page(s), you can edit them at any time. ALL DATA IS SECURE. ONLY AUTHORIZED LAW ENFORCEMENT CAN ACCESS THE DATA.

You can create a profile for your loved one FREE of charge regardless of your local police department’s participation in the program, however, they will not have access to the database or the ability to send missing person notifications unless they have enrolled. Please contact your local police department or municipality and ask them to partner with ID Me 911 to keep your loved ones safe.
Your peace of mind is just as important as their safety.

In February 2014, First Responders were called to a rural location in Wayne County, New York for the report of a child “trapped” on the ice. Upon arrival, Law Enforcement Officers learned the child was not trapped on the ice, however, he was playing on a frozen creek bed, placing himself in a dangerous situation.
