Take Me Home Program

The “Take Me Home” Program is a regional photo-based information system hosted by the Sheriff’s Department accessible by all Law Enforcement in San Diego. It is designed to assist Law Enforcement (Police and Sheriff) during contacts with members of the community who have disabilities such as, but not limited to Autism, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Down syndrome, deafness or any other Developmental Disabilities.
The program promotes communication and gives Law Enforcement access to critical information about the individual enrolled. The Take Me Home Program can provide Law Enforcement with emergency contact information, detailed physical descriptions, and photograph of the individual, known routines, favorite attractions, or special needs of the individual. This information can assist Law Enforcement in communicating with, locating a residence for, or handling an emergency involving an individual with special needs. This program has photo recognition technology attached to it. If an individual is located and cannot communicate, a photograph of the individual can be taken in the field, sent electronically and checked against those in Take Me Home Program for similar or match.
How do I enter the program?
The easiest way to enter is by clicking the REGISTER ONLINE NOW button above. This allows you to register for the program and submit a photo electronically from a desktop computer, iPad, iPhone or Android device.

Road Closures- February 8, 2015

The San Dieguito Half Marathon will be held Sunday February 8, 2015.  It starts from San Dieguito Park, runs through the ranch and finishes at the Park. Several of the legs of the race are repeat out and back.  There is a three hour time limit for participants, so we expect outlying roads may open as runners have cleared and it is safe to open the road.
Refer to the map below.  Please plan your trips that morning. Look for an alternate route.   The race should be over by 11:30 or so. If you leave your home and you live within the race route, you may not be able to get back to it until the last runners clear the road.

Below is the letter that we mailed to residents, and the map of the route and closures.

Road Closure

Las Colinas between Via De La Valle and El Zorro Vista is closed due to a vehicle hitting a telephone pole earlier today.  The collision caused the pole to snap and the large telephone lines are across the road, making travel through that area near the Village Church impossible.  The estimated time for opening he section of the road is about 9pm tonight.  Please drive carefully and watch for workers on the road.
