[ARCHIVED] WCSO Offering Daily Welfare Calls to Check On Residents


WCSO offering daily welfare calls for residents

Sheriff Keith Sexton is establishing a community service to have a member of his staff call on residents who may need a daily check in.

“Families need support, and we all know folks who need someone to contact them daily,” said Sheriff Sexton. “Whether this is an elderly person, someone who is home alone recovering from a sickness, or other issues, we will give them a call and make sure they’re ok.”

The new service will give families peace of mind and serve as a touchpoint for the Sheriff’s new Caring Community Programs.

“Reaching out by simply making a phone call, or stopping by while out on patrol, makes our deputies more accessible to residents and makes residents more trusting of law enforcement,” Sheriff Sexton said. “I’m a big believer in community services and this one is the first of many we will roll out of the new and improved WCSO.”

The system will be up and running in the next few weeks. You can fill out a Call Form to sign up. Please email the completed form to
