OPERATION REASSURANCE

WHAT IS “OPERATION REASSURANCE”?

This program is designed to give SENIOR CITIZENS and/or DISABLED PERSONS the opportunity to speak to a representative of the Police Department or leave a message on a daily basis, just to make sure you are OK and haven’t had any problems during the night.

DO I NEED THIS PROGRAM?

Only you can answer that question. Maintaining one’s independence can be an increasingly difficult task as we age. The Operation Reassurance program is designed to assist senior citizens and disabled persons with maintaining their independence through a daily check-in call, and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why we implemented the “OPERATION REASSURANCE” program many years ago.

DO I QUALIFY?

This program is available to any SENIOR CITIZEN or DISABLED person residing in Chatham Township.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

IT’S FREE!!!!

WHAT’S INVOLVED IF I JOIN?

 WHAT DO THE POLICE DO IF THEY DON’T HEAR FROM ME??
