A STAFF REPORT

The Arab Tribune

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office’s Project LifeSaver, which puts tracking bracelets on Alzheimer’s patients and others with mental disabilities who might wander off, has received a $1,000 grant from the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.

But Sheriff Phil Sims says his department could use even more help from local citizens and civic groups to get the program to where they want it to be.

“I want to thank the Poarch Band of Creek Indians for their endowment for the specific purpose of supporting the Project Lifesaver program,” Sims said. “This endowment will help purchase much needed equipment to help serve the citizens of Marshall County in this endeavor.”
