Sheriff’s Office to start RUOK
Thu, 01/23/2020 – 8:15am
Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office will begin a new program called RUOK for people who live alone, or for relatives or friends of a loved one who lives alone, with no one checking on them regularly.
Every day, clients will get a telephone call from the Sheriff’s Office at a pre-arranged time to verify the client is all right, Sheriff Todd Brackett said. If the call isn’t answered, either a first responder or a designated person will go to the home to check up on the client, Brackett said.
There is no cost to participate, he said. Applications are available at libraries, town offices, police departments and the Sheriff’s Office.
