The Yadkinville Police Department would like to remind town residents of its Cops Care program. The program is aimed at connecting local law enforcement with area senior citizens in order to better protect them.

“This program has become an important part of our community and continues to grow. Our senior citizens are very important to our community and we at the police department want to do all we can to help them, the Cops Care program allows us to do this and also allows them to get to know us and become more eager to help us. We urge all seniors 65 and older who live within the city limits of Yadkinville to join our program,” said Police Chief Tim Parks.

Additional patrols are made to homes of seniors enrolled in the Cops Care program. The Yadkinville Police department also endeavors to make recurring contact with all participants. In the event of inclement and severe weather conditions, as call volume provides, the office staff endeavors to personally contact each participant to make sure they are taken care of.

Throughout the year the Cops Care Program hosts several several events featuring a meal, entertainment and more.

The Cops Care Program of Yadkinville was established by Chief Tim Parks and staff with the idea of assisting the seniors of in the Yadkinville community.
