WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A tracking system that helps first responders find people who are prone to wandering is coming to West Fargo.

KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/1Q5AnuK ) reports that people who sign up for the program get a personal transmitter so police and firefighters can find them if they’re missing.

Assistant Chief of Police Jerry Boyer says there are criteria that must be met to take part in the program, called Project Lifesaver.

The city got a grant to pay for equipment and training for the nationwide program. Training is underway now.

Other North Dakota agencies currently use the program.
