Sheriff Scott Kane
The following is a conversation that I had with Hancock County Sheriff Scott Kane. Our discussion focused on a very unique and valuable service that his office offers called the Wanderers Program.  Sheriff Kane answers the following questions during the episode:

1. Tell my listeners about the Wanderers Program.

2. How did this program get started?
3. What information does the Client Wandering Database Intake form ask for?
4. Why is it important that people who love and care for someone with autism, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, or dementia register that person in the database?
5. How does law enforcement use the information to help locate a missing individual?
6. Is the database information shared with other departments in case the person is away from Hancock County when he or she goes missing?
7. How do people request a form?
8. What is bringing you joy right now?
