Sheriff to implement new program

The Mahoning County Sheriff will have a booth at the Canfield Fair this year so fairgoers can see a new information system designed to help local enforcement agencies in the event they have to search for a missing person.

The system will focus on helping agencies searching for children with disorders such as autism or elderly adults with dementia.

Mahoning County Sheriff Jerry Greene said the HomeSafe program is patterned after a similar program that’s been in use in Summit County for several years.

“It’s a database that will have all pertinent information, whether it’s medical information, different types of disabilities that these individuals have, habits that they have, and a current photo of these individuals,” Greene said.
