Detectives with the Salisbury Police Department completed a follow up investigation regarding several complaints of neglect at the Citadel nursing home at 710 Julian Rd. in Salisbury at 10:00 AM on April 23, 2020.

Rowan County and City of Salisbury staff have few communication tools at their disposal to push emergency messages to the community. But none are more effective than RoCo Alerts. This new program has allowed us to send notifications to a large group of people at once for events such as severe weather, missing elderly residents, chemical spills, and lost children. If necessary, we are able to reach just over 55,000 residents between landline telephones, cell phones and email. While cell phone and email addresses are included via opt-ins, landline telephone numbers are included from the telephone company. Think of it as a reverse 911 call to your home telephone
