What is Hamilton's Operation Reassurance Program?

his is a Hamilton Township Police Division Program that seeks to protect the welfare of residents in our community who live alone, and often are senior citizens and residents with special needs who are homebound. "The program is one way that we try to look out for our neighbors who may require or are in need of extra-attention, to make sure they are not in need of assistance. It truly is a special program that looks to protect public safety and protect those with special needs."

Currently over 40 Township residents participate in the program, which is open to all Township residents who reside alone. While the Police Division administers "Operation Reassurance" during weekdays, approximately a dozen community volunteers participate on the weekends to help the program to continue.

Residents who are interested in participating in the program can fill out and return an application (PDF) that is available on the Hamilton Township website or register by calling the Hamilton Township Police Division at 609-581-4033. Members of the community who would like to volunteer during the weekends can also contact the Police Division by phone for further information.

This is a Free program available to all senior citizens or disabled persons living in Hamilton Township. After you register, your only obligation is to call the police daily between the hours of 8-9 am. If we don't hear from you, then we will start asking whatever questions necessary until we verify your safety and well-being.

Participating in the Re-Assurance Program doesn't mean you must stay home every day to call us. We know that things come up on short notice, such as trips to Atlantic City and other locations. When that happens, all you will need to do is contact the Re-Assurance office in advance to let us know what's happening. Or, if it is after hours, you can simply leave a message on our answering machine at 581-4033.
