The Community Assistance Response Efforts (C.A.R.E.) is an outreach program designed for disabled, home bound or elderly residents. As part of the program, participants request health and welfare checks. Volunteers with the department call citizens who have elected to participate in the program several times a week. The goal is to engage and ensure their well-being. If volunteers are unable to make contact or if the volunteer detects a problem, an officer is sent by the home to check on the individual.
