The RUOK? program is designed for an elderly and/or disabled person who lives alone. The program consists of a phone call at a scheduled time each day that is convenient for the individual. If the individual cannot be reached by phone a police officer will be dispatched to check their welfare.
These calls can be suspended in the case of hospitalization, visitation with family/friends or unusual appointments which will keep the individual away from the phone. A simple call to the dispatch center will suspend the calls until the next time set by the individual and/or a family member.
To register for this free program simply contact the Crestview Police Department dispatch center and a member of the Community Service Division will make contact for registration. We need only a few simple questions answered, a list of medications and illnesses/conditions and a list of emergency contacts to use in case of an emergency.
