If you have a family member, friend, or neighbor that you are concerned about, it may be time to contact the police to do a welfare check. Whether it is an elderly person that may have passed away in their home, a person having suicidal thoughts, or a neighbor that appears to be in danger, a wellness check can be a lifesaver. A welfare check, also known as a wellness check, is when police stop by a person’s home to make sure they are okay. Requests for welfare checks are made by friends, family, and neighbors, typically after someone unexpectedly stops answering their phone or getting in touch with others.
If you would like Town police to conduct a welfare check on someone in the Town, please call Prince William County Public Safety Communications at (703) 796-6500.
