Cape May Police CAPE MAY – The Cape May Police Department offers the Reassurance Program to residents of Cape May, West Cape May and Cape May Point who are elderly, disabled, live alone, or face other challenges that put them at increased risk in their homes. Participation in the program is voluntary and there is no cost to residents. 

Members of the Reassurance Program call a designated telephone number at the Cape May Police Department on a daily basis, generally between 5 and 10 a.m. and give their name to the police dispatcher. If the resident has not called in by 10 a.m. a call is placed to his/her residence. If no contact is made by telephone, a police officer is sent to the residents’ home to ensure that they are okay.
