The Hollywood Police Department has a program in place to check on the welfare of our elderly population. It's called “RUOK” (Are You Okay).
Elderly residents participating in the program are called daily, by members of our Teletype Unit, to check on their well-being. If there is no answer, further steps are taken to confirm the elderly resident’s condition and/or status. An officer is dispatched to perform a welfare check at the residence.
Are you a resident, or do you know a resident, who would benefit from being involved in it? To register for the program or to find out more information, call the Public Affairs Unit at 954-967-4371.
