Because the Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Police Department cares about the seniors of our community, we think they deserve our best service. That's why we have the Caring About Resident Elders (C.A.R.E) program, a free daily check-in telephone service to make sure our program participants are alright. We think they deserve as much independence as possible, but sometimes, living alone can create some problems, especially if the senior member has a health condition that some day may require emergency treatment.
Want to Join C.A.R.E.?
If you or someone you know would like to join Operation C.A.R.E., contact Jackie Rose, Community Outreach Coordinator.
Each day, 365 days a year, a Police Dispatcher will call the senior member at an agreed upon time. If the dispatcher is unable to reach the senior by telephone or any of the senior's emergency contacts listed with the Police Department, a Police Officer will be sent to the senior's home to check on their welfare. Any information given to the Police Department will remain confidential.
