Special Needs Registry

Special Needs Registry

Program Details

The Rowlett Police Department is pleased to offer the community a helpful new service to give greater peace of mind to our City's senior citizens and special needs citizens, their families and caregivers. This program will assist police officers in locating missing persons with Alzheimer’s or other special needs.

Citizens of Rowlett can now register a family member with the Police Department by providing:

  • Personal information
  • Medical information
  • Emergency contact numbers
  • Photograph of the registrant

This will greatly aid the Police Department should an Alzheimer’s or special needs person become missing or be found by the police and be unable to provide information.

From time to time, our officers are called upon to assist a lost senior citizen or dependent person. Often these individuals are disoriented and unable to remember their names or where they live. They sometimes experience a long wait while the officers work to identify and return them to their home.

How To Register

The Special Needs Registry is an entirely voluntary program. To register a senior or dependent person, please complete the Special Needs Registry Form.

A current photograph is requested to accompany the form. All information will remain confidential and will only be accessed to locate or return a loved one.


The Rowlett Police Department strives to continue to provide quality service and protection for the citizens of our City. This program is just one more way we can accomplish this task. For additional information please contact Lieutenant Michael McGough at 972-412-6215 or email Michael McGough.
