In many communities such as ours, there are many people who live alone. In Hamilton Township, the Police Division is concerned about their citizens, and has instituted a program known as "Operation Reassurance".
You must live alone, and you must have a telephone. You will be required to call the Hamilton Police Division at a special phone number to inform us that all is well. You must make this phone call to us each day Monday through Sunday, between 8 am and 9 am. If your call is not received by 9:30 am, the police will call you. If there is no answer, the desk officer will dispatch a police car to your residence to see if everything is alright.
You will be required to notify the Police (at the special phone number) in the event that you are going away and give the dates you will not be a participant. Upon returning, you will have to make a call to be placed back on the call list.
The intention of this program is to make sure that people living alone will have personal contact each day with someone to make sure all is well. We are interested in your welfare and are here to help.
If you are interested in participating in Operation Reassurance, Please download the application (PDF) and return it to the Hamilton Police Services Section or call 609-581-4033.
