What is the Return Home Registry?

The Fullerton Police Department’s Return Home Registry is a free, voluntary program designed to get information to Police Officers about missing elderly or disabled persons as quickly as possible to assist Officers in locating your loved ones.

Who Can Join the Return Home Registry?

This is a no-cost voluntary program that allows relatives or caregivers to register people who tend to wander away from their homes due to:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Autism
  • Down’s Syndrome
  • Dementia
  • Any other debilitating illness

What Information is Collected?

The information collected in this program is to assist Officers in their search for missing persons and includes:

  • The person’s name
  • Age
  • Physical description
  • Special needs
  • Favorite places he or she might go to
  • Any other pertinent information

This information allows Officers to quickly identify the reported missing person and take him or her home. It assists the Police when they encounter someone in the field who appears to be lost or confused.

Does the Police Department Share This Information?

Information provided will be accessed only by the Police. The Return Home Registry is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), and does not collect or disseminate medical information.

How Do I Add Someone to the Return Home Registry?

To add someone to the Fullerton Return Home Registry or obtain more information, call the Fullerton Police Department Community Services Bureau at (714) 738-6838.

This program does not guarantee the safe return of your loved ones, but it will provide Officers with an additional tool as they attempt to locate and return your loved ones safely.
