"How does “How Are You Today?” work?
Once a day, at a preset time chosen by you, our computer will call the telephone number you have provided us.
When you answer the phone, you will hear a recorded message that says “Hello, this is the “How Are You Today” Stephenville Police Department messaging service. We are calling to check on Mrs. Smith at 123 Main Street. If you are OK, please dial a 1 on your touch tone phone now. If you are in need of assistance, please dial a 0 on your touch tone phone, or we will alert the proper people of this situation. Thank you and have a nice day.” This is done automatically every day.
If the telephone is picked up and no number is pushed, the computer will notify the dispatch center. The dispatcher will attempt to contact you to verify if you are OK. If you do not answer when the dispatcher calls, they will send an officer to check on you.
