Are you OK? Program consists of three categories:

1. “Call In” Program – This program is for a senior citizen who may live alone. The senior citizen will decide on the day and time he/she will call the police department. If the senior citizen does not call during the designated time, the police secretary or volunteer will make a phone call to check on the resident. If the resident does not answer the phone, a police officer will be sent to the residence to check on the senior citizen.

2. “Senior Call” Program – This program is for senior citizens who elect to be put on a call list. On the designated days and times (Usually Mondays @ 9:00am) the police department will call the senior citizen’s home to check on his/her welfare. If no contact is made, a police officer will be sent to the residence to check on the senior citizen.

3. “Elderly Watch” Program – This program is for the elderly who may need our help more than others. These senior citizens may not have family to check on them or provide assistance. A member of the police department will visit the senior citizen once a week to make sure he/she is okay.
