Anyone who has had an elderly parent, friend, or family member with an intellectual or developmental disability go missing can tell you how important a Silver Alert can be.
Time is often of the essence, and getting the community’s help in looking for that person can be critical.
The success of the Silver Alert program was celebrated at the Capitol this week, with members of the TBI Missing Persons team and Alzheimer’s Tennessee, Inc. meeting with legislators to continue to promote awareness for Alzheimer’s and the importance of the Silver Alert. TBI Director Rausch spoke to the group and offered continued support.
The Silver Alert program has been going strong across the state since its inception, and those involved find it an honor to be a part of a program that plays such a huge role in returning our citizens safely to their loved ones.
