Illinois State Police Begin 'Silver Search' Training

November 07, 2017  | 

Illinois State Police officials have launched statewide training for officers in dealing with Alzheimer's disease patients who wander away and need to be found, reports the Associated Press.

"Silver Search" training will continue for two years and involve 2,500 police officers and dispatchers. Informational cards will also be distributed to every officer.

State Police Director Leo Schmitz says the Silver Search curriculum includes warning signs to look for, communication skills, and procedures for activating a Silver Search.
