Plainsboro Police Services for Seniors

The Plainsboro Township Police Department offers a number of programs to assist seniors. For further information, contact the Plainsboro Police Department at 609-799-2333 or visit the Police Department web page.

911 Cell Phone Distribution

Emergency use only cell phones are available free of charge to Plainsboro seniors. This cell phone will enable you to call 911 to report an emergency.

Operation Reassurance

This program is designed to assure the daily well-being of seniors who live alone. When enrolled, you will call police dispatch daily at a pre-arranged time. If a call is not received, a dispatcher will attempt to call you. If you cannot be reached, a police officer will be sent to your home to assure your well-being.

Carrier Link Program

Your mail carrier will check daily to see that your mail is picked up from your mailbox. If letters pile up or other warning signs indicate that you have a possible problem, a call will be placed to the Police Department. A police officer will come to your home to check on you.
