Take Me Home Program
The Take Me Home program is a FREE service available for all residents of McLennan County, for adults and children who may have difficulty communicating due to a developmental or cognitive disability.
The database is maintained by the Waco Police Department Communications Division. It is only accessible to law enforcement personnel and may include a photograph, disability information, physical description and emergency contact information.
If a person in the Take Me Home program is encountered by a police officer or deputy dispatched by Waco, personnel can access the database and quickly retrieve critical information that can help in communicating with the individual and a safe return to the caregiver.
