EAST GRAND FORKS, MINN. (KFGO-AM) -- The East Grand Forks, Minnesota Police Department is getting federal money to buy equipment to track vulnerable people. It comes following last month's death of an 11-year old autistic boy who drowned in the Red River.

Police Chief Mike Hedlund says they'll use the money to buy ankle or wrist bracelets equipped with a tracking device.  Once a vulnerable person is reported missing, police will use tracking equipment to try to find them.

Hedlund says the goal is to save lives.
