Assisting our older citizens
As the population ages, it is becoming more and more common for the elderly to fall or suffer from illnesses that render them incapable to open the door for emergency responders. To lessen damage and alleviate problems with securing the home the Deer Park Police Department developed a program to facilitate entry into the home. The program was designed to provide a secure location for a spare key to allow emergency responders to access the interior of the home to provide assistance. This allows entry into the home without the need to damage the home. We have several citizens who are now utilizing this program to enhance their well-being.
