The Valparaiso Police Department maintains a CARE Program (Contact, Assistance and Referral) year round, with open registration for those groups who may be sensitive to extreme weather conditions, including senior citizens. Given the current climate, and overall concern for these same groups during the COVID-19 pandemic, VPD has activated its CARE Program.
Residents are encouraged to register themselves or someone they know, who may need assistance during this time. Registration can take place over the phone, by contacting VPD at 219-462-2135. Once registered, "check ups" will be made on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week. Officers will attempt to answer any questions on these calls and perform services when available to address needs. The program will be continued under these guidelines until further notice.
