The Division has been involved with senior citizen issues for a number of years. The Division has expanded the program through regular meetings with senior citizens at RHM Manor (formerly United Labor Tower) on Laurel Rd. in Brunswick. The program also includes School Resource Officers (because of geographical assignments) periodically checking on the well-being of senior citizens.
The Division of Police also works closely with the Medina County Office for Older Adults. Two employees of that agency are contract workers for the Medina County Job and Family Services working on Adult Protective Service issues.
The “Finding Families” program has been established where residents who are caring for an older adult with dementia, or other related issue, can register with the Division of Police.
Members of the Division of Police belong to Senior Focus and Senior Service Networks organizations that assist seniors.
