Illinois’ Silver Alert system will be beefed up, assuming Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner signs a bill recently sent to his desk. Senate Bill 1846 creates the Silver Search Program, which will put in place plans and resources for law enforcement to help find adults suffering from dementia.
It was sponsored in the House by State Representative Dan Beiser (D-Alton).

Another aspect of the bill will give the Silver Search Task Force the direction to work to increase awareness of dementia and similar diseases throughout the state.
