How It Works



When the subscriber receives the automated call, the system request that the individual press a specific number on the key pad of the phone. If the individual does not answer or selects an incorrect key, the automated system will call back two more times (a total of three attempts). If the person has not responded by the third attempt, an individual working in our 911 Dispatch center will attempt to call the home of the subscriber. If the citizen is unreachable at that point, an officer will be responding to their address to attempt a welfare check.
