Hutto Home Safe Program

Program Overview

Hutto Home Safe is a database used by police officers to identify individuals who may need special assistance if they are alone or in times of emergency. This assistance is needed when a person is confused, unable to speak, or unable to properly identify themselves. The Hutto Home Safe program assists individuals who may have trouble communicating as a result of:

  • Alzheimer's Disease or other Dementias
  • Autism
  • Developmental or Cognitive Disabilities
  • Down Syndrome

Database System

The system includes a digital photograph, demographic information, and contact information of a caregiver. A police officer can search the system by name or the person's physical description. Once the person's Hutto Home Safe record has been located, the police officer has the information necessary to properly assist the individual. All information in the database remains confidential.

The Police Department makes the commitment to use the program and gather and maintain individual enrollment records. The information is entered into a computer database which can be accessed at the police station. If the officers find someone who can not communicate, they can search the database by physical description. The system also works in reverse, if a person is reported missing their picture and a description is immediately available to officers

Annual Update

Information saved in the Hutto Home Safe database must be updated annually.
