Register an “At Risk Resident 

Welcome to the At-Risk Resident platform! Here, residents can register family members by creating detailed individual profiles for those who have disabilities, diseases and conditions, and/or impairments.
These profiles build a unique understanding of each person by incorporating demographics, communication methods, diagnoses, prior histories, and emergency contacts. Photographs can be uploaded for accurate and efficient identification during a missing person incident or crisis events.
Our goal is to have South Russell Police Department pair this familiarity and knowledge of members in the At-Risk Resident platform with physical resources and preparedness through training to provide you with the best possible service.
After registering a family member, an SRPD officer will reach out to you by phone and email to welcome you to the platform and provide additional details.
Thank you for supporting us as we continue to strive to be “One With Our Community.”
