SAN ANTONIO, TX and LONG BEACH, CA – July 28, 2021 – The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is launching a new initiative with Momentum IoT at the Sheriff’s Association of Texas’ 143rd Annual Training Conference & Expo.
The County’s innovative “You Are Not Alone” program enables families to care for and keep track of elderly in their care. The “You Are Not Alone” Program is a reassurance program sponsored by the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office for seniors or disabled citizens who live alone.
Momentum IoT’s GPS vehicle trackers will be offered as part of the program, with a portion of proceeds going back to the Sheriff’s Office to fund its initiative.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Momentum to deliver this capability to families,” said Michael Kahlenberg, Coordinator of Senior Services for the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office. “This easy-to-use GPS tracker will help them keep track of their seniors’ vehicles, while also balancing their need for freedom in a responsible way,” he added.
“When the Fort Bend Sheriff’s Office came to us with this idea, we jumped at the chance to help,” said Justin Silva, CEO of Momentum IoT. “We think bringing peace of mind to more people is a worthy goal, and we’re honored to be able to help,” he added.
The Sheriff’s Association of Texas’ 143rd Annual Training Conference & Expo takes place on Sunday, August 1 through Wednesday, August 4, 2021, at the Henry B Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.
