Caring for our Senior Citizens

The CARE Program allows senior citizens and others to register for an automated call from the Department of Public Safety to check on their welfare. Subscribers may direct the frequency, days of week, and time of days for the calls. Should the subscriber not respond to their call, a telecommunicator will follow up and will send an officer to check on the subscriber.
