The HELP program is designed to assist the police in locating an individual with special needs who, if faced with a sudden medical or other emergency may not have the ability to communicate their identity or medical condition. The program is facilitated by a bracelet, similar to a medical alert tag, that contains an identification number and the name and telephone number of the Newton Police Department. The Police Department will maintain identification and other special needs information associated with the identification number assigned those that voluntarily participate in the program. The information will be available to police officers 24 hours-a-day and will be held in strict confidence.
