SALT (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together)


October 16, 2017

On Thursday this week from 10-12 at the Ompah Community Hall there will be an educational session related to SALT (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together). This is aimed to;

-Increase awareness of the available services for seniors, including crime prevention and victim assistance programs

- Improve communication networks between communities,

- Establish and maintain contact with seniors, faith groups, retirement homes and other organizations in the community to encourage and facilitate dialogue on matters relating to seniors,

- Advocate for seniors where appropriate,

- Develop and implement, in cooperation with the police, programs and strategies to address concerns of seniors.

We are hoping to implement the SALT program in North Frontenac and this session is geared to all residents to educate and make us aware of the issues facing seniors and how we can assist seniors. One key item that is an issue today is fraud targeting seniors as an example. It is hoped our community volunteer groups can take the lead to establish a North Frontenac SALT program to support our seniors.
