The Apex Police Department “Community Well-Check Program” was started in 2020 as a program to help with the day-to-day safety and well-being of community residents who live alone in the city limits of the Town of Apex.

If no contact can be made with the participant or their emergency contact, the Apex Police Department will dispatch an officer to the participant’s address in an attempt to make contact with the participant to ensure they are safe.
