Albany-- Senior citizens are often the targets of criminals. Albany Police want to teach seniors how to avoid becoming victims.
The city sponsored a senior safety seminar Tuesday afternoon at the Robert Cross Middle School gym.
Police officers, advocates with the Elderly Legal Aid Program, and Mayor Tommy Coleman talked with the seniors about crime and safety. "We have a growing senior population throughout the country, but certainly here in Albany," said Coleman.
"A lot of times senior citizens are vulnerable to various kinds of frauds, other kinds of services, medical services," said the mayor.
" Individuals come into their area and target them, because they leave alone," said Corporal Nathaniel Norman of the Albany Police Dept. "Their children have moved away from home."
The city had to turn away some senior citizens from the seminar, because of the number of people wanting to attend.
Leaders say they will host another seminar soon, in a bigger facility so more can attend.
