The Senior Citizens Awareness Network (SCAN) is a program utilized by the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office to take a proactive approach to address the needs of seniors of Hawkins County. Reports show Americans age 55 and older will double between now and the year 2030. As our senior population increases in record numbers so do issues related to addressing the needs of isolated, lonely, at risk and financially challenged seniors. The challenge to address these needs falls on all of us.
Ensuring public safety requires a partnership between law enforcement and the citizens we serve. By working together, we can effectively identify and solve issues in our community, reach out to our fellow citizens, and take decisive steps to prevent crime. SCAN offers you, the civic minded citizen, an opportunity to get involved and to make a difference. We encourage you to get involved in this program and make a difference.
