Public Safety Teams Up to Help Elderly

Posted: Updated:

The North Mankato and Mankato Police departments are teaming up to provide community education for seniors.

The collaboration, between law enforcement, seniors and the community will inform senior citizens on some of the various crimes targeted at the elderly, including fraud.

Chief Boyer says, "It's a great volunteer opportunity and it improves quality of life. It gives you some idea of what goes one in the criminal justice system also, but it's a lot of safety education on top of that."

For more information on how to get involved, call Mankato Public Safety at 507–387–8795.
