"We Care" Program

Anyone who lives alone in Pocono Township may sign up to participate in a special security program. The Community Policy We Care program is designed to provide added personal security to the elderly, disabled or ill, who live alone.
The Pocono Township Police Department will maintain a list of the individuals, emergency numbers, contact persons, key holders, and other information. Each day between 9:00AM and 11:00AM the participating person is to call the Police Department and check-in so that the Police know everything is fine and they are well. If no call is received by 11:00AM, the Police will call them. If no response is obtained, an officer will be dispatched to the residence to check on their well-being.
