The Centre County Sheriff’s Department has been chosen to participate in a pilot program that aims to help area seniors have a better peace of mind.
It’s called the The Sheriff’s Senior Check-In Service and features a daily or scheduled check-in phone call from the office for anyone enrolled.
If the enrollee is in distress or does not answer the phone after several tries, the Sheriff’s Office will do a safety check.
The program is for seniors over 65 years old who are living independently.
If you’re interested in the call-in service, you must enroll in the program which is expected to run through this year.
