Valparaiso PD Engages CARE Program During Coronavirus

Apr 2, 2020

VALPARAISO - The Valparaiso Police Department is upping its Care Assistance and Referral Program (CARE)  to help anyone, especially senior citizens who may be vulnerable to the Coronavirus.

Sergeant Joe Hall, Commander of Support Services with Valparaiso PD, says the program is offered year-round and is normally used when the weather is at extreme temperatures, but now it's being engaged until life returns to normal after the Coronavirus crisis.

"But with our current pandemic and the situation that we're going with we have the program activated now, Hall says.  We're able to check on anyone registered for the program on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays just to make sure that they are okay, see if there's any services we can assist them with providing and just check in on their overall well being."

To get registered for the program call the Valparaiso Police Department at 219 462-2135.  Callers need to provide their name, address, phone number and must be a resident of Valparaiso.
