This ID then can be carried on his/her person. In the event he/she becomes lost or disoriented the ID will have an assigned number and anyone coming in contact can call the Rosendale Police. The Police Department can then notify the parent or guardian. This program can also assist Seniors or persons who have medical conditions.
