A program aimed at saving lives is getting a second chance here in the Lehigh Valley.

Allentown and Bethlehem Police Departments will both begin training on Project Lifesaver in November.

The program uses tracking bracelets to find missing people especially those who suffer from neurological diseases like Alzheimer's or Autism.

The project was first introduced in Lehigh County a few years ago but was never fully implemented.
