Operation Safe Return is a program designed to assist "Memory Impaired" or "Non-Verbal" persons. Residents of the community who are themselves or have a member of their family suffering from a disability which has an effect on their memory or speech may apply to participate in the program.
Any resident can approach the department and ask for an application. Upon completion of the application process, the participant will be issued an I.D. Card and a bracelet, which will have a number on it. This number will allow an officer to check the information on the person it belongs to. The identification card and bracelet will also let other cities or towns know that they should contact the Merrimack Police Department if they encounter this person. Our records will have pertinent information regarding family members, telephone numbers and other information that will assist the officer in determining where the resident resides.
