"Are You OK" - Senior Citizen Program
If you are a senior citizen, if you are disabled are know of a person that resides in Natchitoches Parish and would benefit from daily contact with the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Office, "Are You O.K.?" is for you according to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Victor Jones Jr.
"Are You O.K.?" is a simple, effective telephone reassurance system that contacts you the subscriber each day at the same time. When you answer the telephone, the system accepts the call and moves on to the next subscriber.
If you don't answer the telephone, the system will call you back a short time later. If you still don't answer, an alert is issued in the NPSO 911 Center and a Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's deputy will be
dispatched to the subscriber address to check on their well-being.
This program has been offered by the NPSO for several years. Several senior citizens are enrolled.
If you are interested or know of anyone that may benefit from this program, please contact Deputy Sandra Moreau at 318-357-7830.
