Senior Operation Safeguard
A free service provided to the senior citizens of Nashville.
(Telephone Reassurance Program and Alzheimer/Dementia Program)
1. Telephone Reassurance Program – Nashville residents that are interested should be elderly or handicapped and have the need to be checked on periodically. A police officer will contact the person regularly to check on the welfare of the person. If the person is unable to be contacted, then a family member or friend will be contacted to make sure the person is okay. If necessary, the officer will go to the residence and check on the person. This program is designed so that if a resident does not have family here in Nashville, we can help check on you or your loved one and their welfare.
2. Alzheimer / Dementia Program – The person with Alzheimer/Dementia will be provided with a metal bracelet to wear. This bracelet will have the person's identification and the phone number for the Nashville Police Department. The police department will have the person's family and contact information on file to aid in getting a lost or disoriented person back where they are supposed to be.
If you are interested in either of these programs, please contact the Nashville Police Department
at 870-845-3434 during business hours, Monday through Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm.
On New Year's Eve, if I have had too much to drink and am afraid to drive will an officer escort me home?
