The Ocean City Police Department is looking out for local senior citizens by offering the Lifeline Program
Seniors without any family or friends in the area can enroll in this program for free. Each day, the senior is asked to call the department and check in. If no call is made, the department will call them. If there is no communication between both parties, an officer will check visit the senior's residence and check on his or her well-being
Sgt. Dave Hall says the program has been in place for his entire 17-year career with the OCPD.
"This program is important to give seniors living on their own the peace of mind of being checked on a daily basis," Hall said.
For more information on the program, call the communications supervisor, Kathy Huffard, at 609-525-9124 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
