D.A.R.E. PROGRAM

BICYCLE SAFETY HELMET PROGRAM

From April through September each year, the department promotes a positive “Bicycle Helmet Safety Citation”, which is offered to youth “caught” wearing a safety helmet while bike riding in the Rolesville community. According to NHTSA Traffic Safety Facts, motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of death for children ages 4 through 14. The injury and death rate statistics of juveniles, while operating bicycles on the streets, is alarming. The Rolesville Police Department partners with McDonald’s of Rolesville to sponsor the program by providing officers with ice cream cone gift cards to give the youth that are spotted wearing a bike helmet while riding in the community.

The event is free and open to the youth in the community within the age group of 4 through 14. This event will take place at Thales Academy in Rolesville. Call 919-556-7226 for more information.

DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER PROGRAM

Impairment Goggles are an internationally popular hands-on prevention tool used to educate people of all ages about the consequences alcohol misuse and abuse. The goggles use a special lens technology that allows the wearer to experience a realistic simulation of impairment. Participants experience how alcohol impairs a person’s balance, vision, reaction time, and judgment. Simple activities with the goggles, such as walking a line “heel-to-toe”, standing on one leg, reaching out to grab a set of car keys, or tossing a ball, become effective teaching moments as the participant experiences how susceptible they are to potentially dangerous consequences.

Participants perform simple sobriety tests without the goggles to establish a sober baseline. The exercise is then repeated while wearing the goggles. Participants typically struggle to maintain their balance, equilibrium, reaction time, targeting and will exhibit behaviors similar to an individual under the influence of alcohol. Participants gain an understanding of the impact of alcohol on their ability to function. The experience can be used to support lessons about impaired driving, high risk or binge drinking, underage drinking or any initiative dealing with the misuse and abuse of alcohol.

INTERNET EXCHANGE PROGRAM

Potential users of websites such as Craigslist and other online services can use the side parking lot of the Rolesville Police Department (204 Southtown Circle), as a safe place to exchange internet purchases. While a large number of internet transactions occur without issues, the Rolesville Police Department wants to reduce the risk of fraudulent activity by providing a safe zone. The zone is clearly marked by signs and is video recorded 24 hours a day.

OPERATION PORCH LIGHT

Flip on your light to put crime in sight. All auto break-ins usually have one thing in common: there is something left in the car worth stealing. Most larcenies from cars are “crimes of opportunity” that could be prevented by taking some preventative steps. The Rolesville Police department recommends that residents turn on exterior porch and driveway lights, lock ALL of your vehicle’s doors, and avoid leaving valuables in your vehicle.

SHOP WITH A COP

The Shop with a Cop program is designed to help foster a positive interaction between students and law enforcement within the community. Individual officers are partnered with students (grades K-8th grade). Each student is given an opportunity to receive a gift card, go Christmas shopping at Walmart with a police officer as a shopping buddy . The Rolesville Police Department thanks its sponsors, who have generously contributed to this effort.

TELEPHONE REASSURANCE PROGRAM

This service is available to Town residents at no cost, and it is open to anyone who lives alone, age 65 years of age or older, or any adult with a physical disability. The Telephone Reassurance Program provides a friendly and familiar voice to people who live alone and feel isolated from the community because of their homebound status. The program operates Monday thru Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  A trained representative calls between the hours listed above to assure safety and provide a sense of caring.  If there is not an answer, an emergency contact person must verify the well-being of the individual.
