City of Olathe – Volunteer time on the phone for the Operation Lifeline program

Operation Lifeline Still Available to Those in Need
With the recent extreme temperatures, the Olathe Police Department would like to remind the public of its Operation Lifeline program.  This initiative enlists community volunteers to make daily telephone calls to retired and self-care individuals who don’t have anyone available to check on them regularly.  If a volunteer is unable to make telephone contact with a program participant, a police officer is dispatched to the residence to check on the individual.

Individuals who would like to participate in this program must meet the following criteria:

  • Live within the city limits of Olathe

• Have no family members living in the immediate area to do regular check-ins
• Be able to provide Olathe Police Department access to residence in the event of an emergency.

Operation Lifeline is free of charge.  Additional information is available by contacting the Community Outreach Unit at 971-7500.
