Award Maverick and smithsonThe Mercer County Sheriff’s Office Project Lifesaver Unit was recognized for its efforts to help residents. Last winter, an elderly resident was feared lost in extreme outdoor temperatures with 2-degree wind chills. The Sheriff’s Project Lifesaver Unit was immediately dispatched to search for him. The seventy-four year old man, who had dementia and had been wearing a Project Lifesaver-tracking bracelet issued by the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office, was successfully located several miles from his home and reunited with his family.
