The Scarsdale Police Department utilizes the R.U.O.K. Computerized Telephone Reassurance System. This system provides senior citizens that mainly live alone with a daily-automated telephone call from the police department at a time specified by the senior. Between the hours of 0600 and 0900 hrs daily the computer automatically calls subscribers. Subscribers are greeted by a pre-recorded message from a member of the Scarsdale Police Department asking if they are ok. If the subscriber does not answer their daily call, communications personnel will then follow standard departmental guidelines to make contact with either the subscriber or their emergency contact.
Enrollment in the R.U.O.K. Program is not limited to senior citizens that live alone, persons with special needs are also urged to enroll. Applicants must be interviewed by a representative of the police department who will determine if the R.U.O.K. program would meet their individual needs. There is no fee for this service.
The Scarsdale Police Department utilized an older RUOK® product that they acquired in the 1990's. In 2011, they replaced this system with a CARE (Call Reassurance) phone system from Database Systems Corp. to provide its senior citizens with a phone reassurance service. Citizens can be called daily free of charge to ensure their well-being.
