The Pima County Sheriff's Department is unveiling a new program to help those with developmental disabilities who wander off or get lost, be reunited with their caregivers and loved ones.

The department will provide those who sign up with bracelets engraved with unique ID numbers that attach to their name, address and emergency contact.

The first sign up event is Nov. 7 at the annual KGVY Sr./Boomer Info Fair in Green Valley.
