Vacation Watch

With the Vacation Watch program, the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office will check your residence while you are out of town. If anything out of the ordinary is found during these checks, the emergency contact you specify for the residence will be notified.

ELDERLY WATCH

The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office operates an Elderly Watch Program, collaboratively engaging with the Senior Center to identify vulnerable senior citizens lacking immediate familial support, particularly in adverse weather conditions. This proactive initiative involves preparedness for contingencies such as food shortages, as experienced in previous instances of inclement weather. The Sheriff’s Office promptly responded by mobilizing resources, including the preparation of sustenance at the Detention Center and the utilization of specialized vehicles to deliver provisions to numerous senior residences. These diligent officers extended their support beyond nourishment distribution, also providing assistance with snow clearance, medication delivery, and even facilitating essential repairs at no financial burden to the citizens.
