ASU Offers Senior Citizens Chance to Enhance Their Safety
Senior citizens can learn ways to enhance their personal safety and residential security during a seminar offered Tuesday, Sept. 25, by Angelo State University.
Sponsored by ASU's Division of Continuing Studies, the Senior Safety Seminar will meet 1:30-2:30 p.m. Tuesday in Room 110 of the Houston Harte University Center.
The seminar will provide basic information about personal safety, security in public places, protective hardware and residential security. By gaining and applying the knowledge presented during the seminar, senior citizens can help protect themselves against violent crimes, property crimes, frauds, scams and elder abuse.
Officer Eric Foerster with the San Angelo Police Department will lead the seminar. He is a member of the Police Department's Community Services Division and the local chapter of TRIAD, a national organization that works to reduce criminal victimization of the elderly.
The one-hour seminar is free to senior citizens. However, space is limited so senior citizens are encouraged to call and reserve a seat. For additional information or to make reservations, contact ASU's Division of Continuing Studies, (325) 942-2339.
