WHAT IS “WE CARE”

WE CARE is an automated system designed to call a senior or home-bound person once a day to check on their welfare. HOW DOES IT WORK A daily call is made to the client. If the call is not answered after three attempts an alert is generated. Either the Citizen’s Patrol or the Surprise Police Department will then perform a home welfare check. This service is available to residents of the City of Surprise who are vulnerable due to health or age. The WE CARE program is made possible by grants and donations from Surprise businesses, organizations and numerous caring private citizens who support the mission of the Surprise Police Department.
