The caller identifies by name as a Police Department volunteer, in response to the registration form at department offices. If there is no answer to the call, emergency procedures are immediately introduced to provide help if or as needed, according to Deputy Chief Jen Wesley who introduced and heads the program.
Chief Deputy Wesley urges Belton residents who feel they need this support program to call (254)-933-5840 the police department, for general information about the program.
"We will deliver a registration form, fill it out for you if necessary, or leave for you to complete and come back and pick it up if you prefer. Belton Police Department feels very strongly that this is a very important service to a special segment of the Belton population."
Also registration forms may be picked up at the police station at 711 E. 2nd Ave.
However, "we do ask if you are registered with this program and plan be away from your telephone on Wednesday, please call us at 933-5840 that U R OK so we won't call out the troops unnecessarily."
"The service is free to all who are eligible. The department is aware that the city has residents who qualify for and need this service", Deputy Wesley said.
