“Unfortunately our seniors are often viewed as easy targets to perpetrators who look to prey on easy victims,” Greenwood said. “This casual conversation is an opportunity to inform our seniors of potential dangers and ways protect themselves from becoming victims of various crimes.”
Greenwood is partnering with local enforcement to host a Coffee and Conversation at the Clyde C. Jordan Senior Center on Friday, Aug. 11 at 10 a.m. to discuss ways seniors can keep themselves safe and out of harm’s way. East St. Louis Police Chief Michael Hubbard and Captain Tim Tyler with the Illinois State Police will be providing useful information and resources to the local seniors in an effort to help reduce the victimization of our most vulnerable residents.
“When our seniors are informed about ways to protect themselves they become better equipped to deal with potential harmful situations,” Greenwood said. “I look forward to meeting with our local seniors and also being helpful in reducing some of their safety concerns.”
