Just In Case Program

Download the “Just In Case” Registration Form

The Just In Case Program is a comprehensive city-wide registry of patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia-related disorders.  As its name might suggest, the Just In Case Program functions as an emergency tool in the event that an individual wanders and becomes lost or disoriented.  Manchester Police officials may then refer to the Just In Case database for easy identification in order to provide a quick and safe return of that individual.

This program is also used to identify people in our community living with disabilities.  Registration in this program alerts the police to a person’s diagnosis and emergency contact, as well as what both calms and triggers the individual, so police officers can better respond to a person’s individualized needs during an encounter.

The program consists of a digital photo of the individual along with personal information (name, date of birth, address) along with emergency contact information and any important medical information.  This information will be kept in the Manchester Police database and remain confidential.

The Manchester Police Department will accept registrations from residents of the cities and towns of Auburn, Bedford, GoffstownHooksettLitchfield, Londonderry and Manchester.
