Do you have a legal or law enforcement background? You can help reduce the victimization of senior citizens who are often targeted for specific crimes or scams based on their age.

As an RSVP volunteer with the Seniors vs. Crime Project of the Polk County Sheriff's Department you can make a difference by investigating complaints and acting as a consumer advocate. Seniors vs. Crime is a project of the State Attorney General's Office and is highly successful in assisting victims.

* You MUST be 55+ years of age to volunteer.
