Are You Ok? Program

(440) 777-3535

The North Olmsted Police Department provides this free telephone reassurance program consisting of daily check-in phone calls for older residents. Those registered can choose a time they would like to be checked in on every day and the department will contact them to ask, “Are You Ok?” If the resident does not answer after two attempts, an officer will be dispatched to their home to check on them. Call for more information and an application.
