Protecting seniors from crime
ALBANY-- The Albany County District Attorney's office is educating seniors about elder abuse.
It's part of the Seniors And Law Enforcement Together, or SALT program.
It was created back in 2008 after members of law enforcement noticed a growing trend of crimes against senior citizens.
Albany County DA David Soares says one of the goals is to let seniors know how they can avoid being taken advantage of.
To learn more about the program, SALT is hosting a forum at 10:30 a.m.at the Westview Apartments on Central Avenue in Albany.
