Citizen Well Check

The Randolph County Sheriff's Office Citizen Well-Check provides a way for seniors and individuals with medical issues, to verify their well being. 

How does the program work?

Citizens who participate in this FREE program are automatically checked on by phone five days a week.  An automated call with a prerecorded message or a live call will be made at the same time each day.  For the automated call, you will hear a message and it will ask for a confirmation by pressing a key.  If you can’t answer the telephone immediately,  another call will be made shortly. If they do not respond to the second call,  a third call will be made soon after. If the citizen did not answer at this time and designated a contact person on the application, a call will be made to that person and the Sheriff's Office will dispatch a deputy to the member's residence to determine if he or she is okay.

What if I know I'm not going to be at home?  Citizens have an opportunity to call the Sheriff's Office at 336-318-6689 to "check-out" for the day if they will not be at home when the call is made.
