Lassy Project™ and the Town of Windsor including the Police Department are partnering to give Windsor residents the opportunity to have an additional tool to help build a safer community.
The Lassy Project™, a free smartphone app allows parents and guardians to build a network of trusted neighbors, friends and community members. Should a child ever go missing, the Lassy Project™ app provides parents the ability to press a button and mobilize their network or the larger community in seconds to form an instant search and rescue team. This network of community members is the most important asset users have if a child goes missing.
“We are supporting the Lassy Project™ as this is an additional tool for parents or guardians to use for their families in keeping them safe. We hope parents do not have to use it, but if a child or a loved one does go missing, this app gives them a way to alert the community as quickly as possible,” said John Michaels, Chief of Police.
To help make Lassy Project™ successful and build a safer community, the Town of Windsor encourages members of the community to register for Lassy Project™ - including parents, school officials, community members, first responders, and local businesses.
"Getting a message out in seconds to hundreds of individuals right near the area could make the difference between finding the child and not finding the child," said John Guydon, Co-Founder of Lassy Project™.
