WCSO deputy buys groceries for elderly women


On Feb. 2, Walton County Sheriff's Deputy Jason Day responded in the area of Point Washington in reference to a welfare check.

The two ladies at the residence are a part of WCSO's Project Safetynet where dispatchers make scheduled calls to check in on a loved one who might be living by themselves and are at a high risk of health related incidents.

On this particular morning the two ladies who live at the address did not answer their phones.

When Day arrived at the home he realized their phones needed to be fixed and went to Walmart to purchase phone cords for them. When he returned with the cords he also discovered the ladies were unable to drive.

He asked them what they did for groceries and they told him they usually depend on churches and charitable organizations. Deputy Day then made a list of all the items they needed and went to Publix to get them.

We are thankful for our dispatchers and deputies who make it their duty every day to ensure our citizen's safety and well-being.

In this case Deputy Jason Day went above and beyond for these two women! Job well done!
