Seniors vs. Crime Office
733 S. Semoran Boulevard
Orlando, FL 32807
- In 1989, some of Florida’s most effective crime fighters were unleashed through the creation of the Attorney General’s Seniors vs. Crime Project. This effective unit has allowed seniors to become involved in not only their own protection, but also that of their fellow citizens.
- The Senior Sleuths program is well-known around the state and can serve as the Attorney General’s eyes and ears. These volunteers actively assist in consumer protection investigations. They have been responsible for recovering more than $8 million for seniors who were the victims of con artists.
- Volunteers work in Seniors vs. Crime offices. More than 3,000 and growing, Senior Sleuths volunteers are providing important assistance to the crime fighting effort. Unethical businesses and individuals may believe that their senior target is helpless when, in fact, these citizens may be working for the Attorney General.
- On Wednesday, April 7, 2010, Commissioner Tony Ortiz opened the first Seniors vs. Crime office in Orange County.
