Senior Safety Series

August 6, 2007

The Charlottesville and Albemarle County Sheriff Departments are teaming up to protect seniors in our area.

Monday, they kicked off a senior safety series.

Speakers educated area seniors about how to protect themselves from scams, identity theft, and people who may prey on seniors because of their age.

This is part of Triad, a program done through the Attorney General’s Office designed to protect Virginia’s growing elderly population.

Charlottesville Sheriff Cornelia Johnson says, “Law enforcement really cares about our senior citizens. Our efforts are to try and make sure that our seniors have a better quality of life, a safe quality of life.”

Monday’s workshop was the first in a series on senior safety.

Programs are free and open to everyone.

The next one is in October at the Senior Center.
