Pitt County deputies work to keep seniors safe

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

The Pitt County Sheriff's Office wants to make sure all members of your family are safe.

They've created a program to help families check up on adults who need help.

It's called Senior Check and it's free.

Deputies tell us the program is designed to make our community better.

Right now 40 people are signed up for "Senior Check."

The program's designed for people older than 60, but Lieutenant Kip Gaskins tells us they haven't turned anyone down, and they want to help. So if there's a special circumstance where someone under 60 needs the program they'll be happy to work with you.  

To sign up or just to get more information on the program call the Pitt County Sheriff's Office at 252-902-2724.
