Elderly Watch

The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office offers an elderly watch program. Officers work with the Senior Center to identify senior citizens who do not have family members who can check on their welfare during severe weather. In 2011, Dawson County received snow and ice on multiple occasions. During this time, the Senior Center ran out of food and was unable to receive supplies from their supplier. The Sheriff’s Office prepared food at the Detention Center, and officers utilized four-wheel drive vehicles to deliver food to dozens of senior citizens’ homes. These officers also assisted with snow removal at these homes, delivered medications, and assisted one citizen with heating repair at no expense to the citizen. To enroll a senior citizen in this program or obtain more information, please email Administrative Assistant Anne Martin at annmartin@dawsoncountysheriff.org
