West Chicago, Illinois: January 19, 2012 The West Chicago Police Department would like the public to know about a free voluntary program designed to assist residents of DuPage County who may be at greater risk of becoming confused, lost, disoriented or missing. The program is called S.P.A.R.R., the acronym for Sheriff's Program for At-Risk Residents, and is administered through Sheriff John E. Zaruba's office. It provides the Sheriff's Office with the at-risk resident's relevant information prior to an emergency.

Information supplied by a family member is stored in a data base that is accessed in case of an emergency. Eligiblity for the program ranges from infant to elderly and special needs to Alzheimer's. To register for the S.P.A.R.R. program, legal guardians or those having power of attorney to register a loved one should call the Sheriff's Office at (630) 407-2400 to set up an appointment.

A sample list of the questions asked at registration may be found on the DuPage County Sheriff's Office website,
