Are You Ok? Our telephone reassurance program is an automated calling service that uses a computer phone system to place calls. The senior is instructed to acknowledge the call using the “Press 1” option on the phone keypad. If the call is not answered or the senior does not acknowledge the call, an alert sequence is initiated that calls family and friends of the senior.
Emergency Cellphone Program The program provides free cell phones for emergency 911 calls. The program will collect and distribute donated cell phones to people over the age of 55. Seniors can then call 911 with their free cell phones at no charge.

24/7 Sobriety Program
The pilot program affects individuals arrested for a second or subsequent DUI occurring on or after January 1, 2008, in those counties. Judges in the South Central Judicial District will, in the case of second or subsequent DUI arrest, issue a bond order requiring the arrestee to refrain from alcohol use and to show up twice each day between certain hours at a specific location for a breath alcohol test. The individual pays $1.00 each test ($2.00 per day) to offset the costs of testing. If the individual’s test registers any alcohol use then he or she is immediately taken into custody. If the arrestee fails to show for testing, bond is revoked. The court may also order remote electronic alcohol monitoring in select cases, and it may also order participation in the pilot program as a condition of probation.
