The Seniors vs. Crime Project is a Florida, non-profit organization that operates as a Special Project of the Florida Attorney General’s Office. The Primary Goal of the Seniors Vs Crime Project is to reduce the victimization of senior citizens who are often targeted for specific crimes or scams based on their age. The Project accomplishes this goal by providing various educational and crime prevention programs to senior citizen groups; investigating complaints and seeking restitution for seniors in appropriate instances and by providing investigative agencies with senior volunteers to assist them with specific investigations.
