Being the victim of a crime is always unpleasant but it can be particularly difficult for the elderly. At the Saanich Police we work to recognize the concerns of the seniors in our community. We understand that we have a responsibility not only to solve crimes against seniors, but to help prevent crime and respond to senior's needs if they are targeted as victims.

A large component of our prevention effort is dedicated to providing seniors with the information they need to recognize common or known types of crimes targeted specifically at them. We are also committed to providing information and resources to help our community deal effectively with Elder Abuse.

The Saanich Police provides information for follow-up support for crime victims by facilitating access to community partners trained to help seniors deal with the impact of crime.
