DuPage County Sheriff Programs for Seniors

Cell Link Program

The Cell Link Program provides cellular telephones to senior citizens who may not have the funds or need to purchase one. The phones are programmed to dial only 911 and cannot make or receive any other calls. All cellular 911 calls are received at the Sheriff's Office.

Applicants for the program must be 62 years of age or older, or younger than 62 but have a physical or mental disability and not own a cellular phone. To apply for Cell Link you may call the Community Resource Unit at 630-407-2317.
