Seniors vs Crime

On August 28th, 2014, posted in: News by

 

Have you ever been scammed? Well a few seniors in the community have been scammed. Will you be the next victim? Now there may be help. A special project sponsored by the Florida Attorney General’s office has been set up to reinforce the message of crime prevention and to alert seniors and other citizens to consumer fraud, con games and other criminal acts.

The Escambia County office is located in the 4th Precinct of the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office at 97 West hood Drive and is open 10am to 2pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The phone number is 850-475-5285. The office is staffed with volunteers, known as Senior Sleuths, who take complaints from those who feel they have been taken advantage of or have been a victim of fraud, scam or suspect they have been victims. A few examples are credit card fraud, identity theft, telemarketing scams, contractor, caregiver, or Medicare. The Seniors vs Crime staff, takes complaints and follows up to assist in resolving complaints. These volunteers act as the eyes and ears for the Attorney General’s Office.

 

The Seniors vs Crime office is also active in educating the public. They will give presentations on how to avoid some of the scams and fraud that may be encountered. Contact them at 850-475-5285 to arrange a presentation for your group.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office’s 7th Annual ‘In Hot Pursuit’ 5K is scheduled for Saturday, November 15, 2014 on Pensacola Beach. Over the past seven years the run has become famous for its fun beach course and the best door prizes around. Most importantly, all proceeds from the race will go to support the Florida Sheriff’s Association Youth Ranches.

The mission of the Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranches is to prevent delinquency and develop strong, lawful, resilient, and productive citizens who will make a positive contribution to our communities for years to come. This year the Youth Ranches will serve over 5,000 needy boys and girls.
This charitable, non-profit childcare agency was founded by the Florida Sheriff’s Association and operates four residential campuses and two camping facilities. Additionally, it provides community-based services and family counselling to as many of Florida’s neglected, troubled children as funds will permit. The organization is funded primarily through charitable donations from its donors.
We are currently seeking sponsors who are interested in joining us in support of this important organization. As a sponsor of ‘In Hot Pursuit’, your organization’s name would appear on the complimentary t-shirt that all race participants will receive as well as on the list of sponsors that will be included in the race packets.
