S.A.F.E. Senior Program

S.A.F.E. stands for Safety, Abuse, and Fraud Education. The purpose of the program is to educate seniors in Mesa about home and personal safety, elder abuse, neglect, financial exploitation, and con games and fraud schemes. We offer presentations on any one of these topics to community organizations, senior residents or any other group who is interested. Crime prevention information is also available on audio cassettes for visually impaired seniors.

We offer training for law enforcement personnel on elder abuse.

The Fraud Alert Hotline (480-644-2345) is part of this program and is set up to inform seniors about current fraud schemes that may affect them.

We are also active in training financial institution personnel on recognizing the signs of financial exploitation of their senior customers.
