Chief Alan M. Goldberg of the Takoma Park Police Department re-announces a program that went into effect on March 1, 2011, called Caring About Residents Everyday (CARE). This program is directed at our residents who live alone with special needs, or just need to be checked on each day. To be a part of CARE, residents who need to be checked on will register with the Police Department. They will call us once each day between 12:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. If they don’t call, we will call them. If they do not answer, we will send a patrol officer to check on their welfare. This program is to protect those in need and bring a sense of peace to those friends and relatives who care, but who are not close enough to check themselves. CARE is another way we can give back to the community and take care of those in need. Please contact Cathy Plevy at 301.891.7142 or to register for this program.

If you were previously signed up for the CARE program, it is imperative that you re-submit your information to Ms. Plevy if you wish to remain in the CARE program
