Senior Citizens Service & Safety

Seniors

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.

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.
