The Greensboro Police Department has partnered with the Guilford County Sheriff's Office and Emergency Services to adopt the Yellow Dot Program, which helps first responders more quickly treat residents during an emergency.
To participate, residents fill out an Emergency Information Sheet
with emergency medical information and photos of themselves. They then place a copy of the sheet in their vehicle glove compartment and their home refrigerator, and put a yellow dot sticker on the back left window of their vehicle and on the front door of a home.
Yellow Dot Program Kits can also be picked up at the following locations:
Guilford County Sheriff's Patrol Division 1 J. Edward Kitchen
Department 100 E. Police Plaza Operations Center
400 W. Washington St. 336-373-2496 (Patrol Division 2)
336-641-3694 2602 S. Elm-Eugene St.
Patrol Division 3 Patrol Division 4 Public Safety Training Facility
300 S. Swing Rd. 1106 Maple St. 1510 N. Church St.
336-373-2637 336-574-4035 336-373-2449
Emergency Information Sheets for people suffering from dementia, Alzheimer's, autism and cognitive impairments can also be submitted to the Sheriff's Office so they can be added to Guilford Metro 9-1-1’s database. This allows dispatchers to let first responders know about these conditions before arriving on the scene.
The Yellow Dot Program, originally started in Connecticut in 2002, is a free service to residents and does not require any application process.
