​Wake County has one of the fastest growing senior populations in the state. Because older Americans face unique issues, the Wake County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) has assembled a page full of informative and educational resources provided by a number of community organizations.

Why are We Transitioning From the Citizens Well-Check Program?

Effective July 1, 2019, the WCSO will transition into a program that will serve all 91,000 Wake County seniors. Under the old system, only a small percentage of the senior community was being served, which was not effective in meeting the needs of protecting a majority of the County's citizens.

Request for Service – "Check on the Welfare"

Should you, your parent, loved one, neighbor, church member or friend need assistance, always know you can contact the Wake County Sheriff's Office by calling 9-1-1 in an emergency or 919-856-6911, in a non-emergency situation. Please advise the emergency contacts in the event they are unable to reach you and are concerned you may be in danger.

Always call, "TO REQUEST A SERVICE – CHECK ON THE WELFARE."
