Community Liaison to Seniors
The Community Liaison to Seniors program provides a proactive approach to help seniors and at-risk adults within our community avoid becoming victims of crime. All too often, seniors become targets of any number of scams, ranging from telephone scams to fraud scams. Criminals choose to prey on this group for a variety of reasons, some of which include their trusting personalities and the difficulty for a senior citizen to be a strong witness and follow a criminal case through prosecution.
Our Community Liaison to Seniors serve and partner with this group by providing invaluable education which will help them detect a scam before they become a victim. It also provides outreach and guidance to seniors on any number of law enforcement topics, including home security, emergency contacts within the community, and what to expect throughout an investigation and court prosecution if they do become a victim. Currently, we have one part-time employee and two volunteers who serve as our liasions.
