Oswego Police Continue Senior Outreach
Sep 01, 2016 04:03PM ● Published by Steven Jack
Part of this commitment included last year the creation of a dedicated team of officers, with a focus on how to best serve the 55 and older community, centering on crime prevention and bridging the gap between the senior community and the residents in the Village.
Oswego Police now have the assistance of an intern from the Aurora University’s Master of Social Work program for nine months. The new intern already has experience in developing and maintaining programs and will create a needs assessment to identify the needs of the 55 and older population as well as assess how well the police are meeting those needs.
The intern and officers will be out in the community continuing to work proactively and getting to know the residents. If you would like more information, or have suggestions for the senior team or new social work intern, contact the Oswego Police Department at 630-551-7300 and ask to speak to one of the officers on the senior team.
