    THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING VOLUNTEERING AS A SENIOR SLEUTH

    The Seniors vs. Crime Project is actively seeking volunteers to become Senior Sleuths and help the Project to better protect Seniors from harmful activity. As a sleuth, your role may be to help operate a Seniors Vs Crime office in your area where seniors can make complaints and seek assistance. You may also be asked to investigate a complaint or monitor advertisements and activity by a particular company or within a particular industry. If needed, you will be provided with training to carry out any of the roles that you wish to undertake and for which we feel you are suitable.
    Some Sleuth assignments can even be carried out as part of a senior’s everyday routine – clipping of suspect newspaper/magazine ads; reporting telemarketers; reporting suspicious solicitations, etc. If a Sleuth is on a work-at-home assignment, the Sleuth might be asked to participate in an assignment that would take them out of their home. For instance, acting as a fill-in at the local Office for a Senior Sleuth who was sick or on vacation. All assignments are strictly voluntary on the part of our volunteers. volunteers do not have to participate in special assignments to remain an active and valued Project participant.

    Qualifications. While many of our sleuths are retired, you need only to have reached age 50 to become a Sleuth. We will welcome you as long as you have an interest in senior’s affairs and particularly the victimization of our senior citizens. You must, however, be able to supply a Florida address to be eligible. Being only a part-time resident of the state is fine. You still qualify for membership.
