There may be times when seniors who live on their own feel the need and would take comfort in a morning check-in call. Through Operation Reassurance, older adults speak daily with a member of the Spring Lake Police Department to make sure that they are safe and sound.
This program enables seniors living in Spring Lake to live independently and feel confident and secure. That may also reassure families and friends who live at a distance.
About the Program
Every morning, from 7 to 11 a.m., participants call Spring Lake Dispatch. A member of the Spring Lake Police Department speaks with the seniors and asks how they are doing and if all is well.
If a participant does not call in during those hours, a member of the police department will call the person at home. If there is no response officers will be dispatched to the home to make sure that the participant is ok.
Operation Reassurance is a free service of the Spring Lake Police Department. Departmental employees serve seniors seven days a week, including holidays.
