Westerville Police Organize Community Outreach to Better Serve Seniors


D.A.R.E. Officer Carrie O’Neil, Crime Prevention Specialist (civilian) Preston Tartt and Lieutenant Tracy Myers joined us on Senior Agenda on March 13th to answer questions, provide insight and offer advice about senior safety and crime prevention.   Listen to the complete interview here.  They spoke about scams that target seniors, neighborhood watch programs, the dangers of social media, and the importance of keeping the screen door closed & locked and the garage door down.  Lieutenant Tracy Myers said that their department is interested in having a "touch point" with each one of their demographic groups, including seniors, so that they can better educate, protect and serve the community.  

The Westerville Division of Police and the Westerville Citizen Police Academy Alumni have organized a Serving Our Seniors Day again this year in an effort to provide information and resources for seniors and caregivers in the local community.  The event has become affectionately known as S.O.S. Day which is next Saturday, March 29th from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm at Westerville South High School located at 303 South Otterbein Avenue in Westerville. It is FREE to the public and includes entertainment, local vendors, door prizes and a FREE lunch while supplies last.  

Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging will present "60+ Rules for the Road" at 10:00 am and the Westerville Division of Police will present "Crime Prevention for Seniors" at 11:45 am.
