The City of Jacksonville Emergency Preparedness Division, in partnership with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department, have created a new voluntary registry, R.E.V.A.M.P. Duval.

R.E.V.A.M.P. Duval, is the Registry for Endangered, Vulnerable, and Missing Persons within Duval County.


What is R.E.V.A.M.P. Duval?
R.E.V.A.M.P. Duval is a voluntary identification program that aids in the safe return of individuals that may be endangered, vulnerable or missing with cognitive and memory impairment or sensory disabilities. The registry is free to those who apply.
Who should register for R.E.V.A.M.P. Duval?
A person qualifying for the R.E.V.A.M.P. Duval is an individual with cognitive or memory impairment, or sensory disabilities who may be at risk for wandering off and require assistance from emergency responders to be returned safely home.
How do I register for R.E.V.A.M.P. Duval?
What are the advantages of entering this information in R.E.V.A.M.P. Duval?
The information entered in the registry becomes available to frontline police officers and fire rescue personnel when responding to a missing person search for the individual. This information provides responders with important context about any behaviors, critical medical conditions, and the best method of approaching the individual when searching for them. The goal of the registry is to decrease the time needed to gather information and search for endangered, vulnerable, and missing persons throughout Duval County.
What information will be recorded in R.E.V.A.M.P. Duval?
The information can include the following, but many fields are not mandatory:
  • The name, age, address, and description of the person
  • The name, address, contact information of the individual entering the data and any other support person who might be able to assist the person being registered
  • Disabilities or critical medical conditions the person may have
  • Behaviors that may be exhibited by the person
  • The best method for approaching the person
  • Any methods of transportation and locations the person frequently visits
How is my information protected?
The information within the registry will only be used in the planning for and provision of search and rescue services provided for the individuals registered. The registry is restricted for emergency responder access only on a “need-to-know” basis for official search and rescue operations.
How will this information be used by police and fire rescue?
This information will only be used by first responders to obtain background information about people they are dealing with if the person is reported missing. In those cases, the missing person’s photograph (if provided), name and description may be shared with the media.
How long will the City of Jacksonville Emergency Preparedness Division retain this information?
The registered person’s information will remain in the database if they re-register annually. We will notify you when it is time to re-register by email, phone, and mail.
Additional Resources
Scent Preservation Kits 
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office (JSO) Scent Preservation Kit® is used to pre-collect and preserve a person's unique scent ahead of time and gives responding K-9 Units a head start during the search by providing the trailing dogs with an uncontaminated scent article. Your scent is as identifiable as your fingerprint to a trained K-9 and can last up to 10 years in our kit. 

The preserved scent isn't touched by other family members, pets, or responders. This means that K-9 Units do not have to go through the time-consuming dismissal process to determine who's scent is actually on the article. They can begin searching immediately and with greater accuracy when every minute counts. 

If you ever need it, you'll have the best possible location resource to present to emergency K-9 responders.

For more information, download the Scent Preservation Kit Information Flyer below.

First Responder Awareness Sticker Program
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office in partnership with  Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department, and JaxReady have created a new program designed to alert first responders that someone at their residence and/or inside a vehicle may have Autism, Alzheimer's, Dementia, or another cognitive impairment. This program is called the First Responder Awareness Sticker Program.

The sticker will give law enforcement, and fire and rescue personnel an advance notice that there may be someone present that could be in need of special assistance, involved in a crisis, or could be lost from the response location.  The sticker program is for awareness only and first responders should act accordingly given the specific situation at the time of response.
Up to three stickers per will be issued for qualifying individuals.  One sticker for the residence and up to two stickers for vehicles belonging to caregivers.  They will be displayed near the front entrance of the residence and on the rear window of the vehicle.
