Dear Association Members,

Our former Executive Officer, Ralph Mahar has provided a link to a publication from the Force which provides an excellent guide to steps we all can take when ensuring our safety and that of our families.

The Force provides the following introduction,

“This guide is for seniors, their family members, care-givers, friends, and anyone else who may find it useful. It is not meant to include everything but tries to answer some common concerns when it comes to seniors’ safety and security. Our goal is to raise awareness of seniors’ safety issues to improve their quality of life.

The information in this guide can also be used to help people and their loved ones discuss this topic to help recognize a potential crime situation and show how to reduce or remove the risk.,

We hope that readers will find the information useful.”
