Start Date: October 1, 2008
City, State: Vero Beach, FL

This year the Indian River Sheriff's Office Crime Prevention Unit will be holding a Safety Day on October 3, 2009.  The day will include an identity theft program, Neighborhood Watch, personal safety, and more.  Our main goal is to educate and make citizens aware of what is going on in their county and how NOT to be a victim.  Also, we hope to teach residents how they can make their communities safer by getting involved and taking the first steps to get to know their neighbors. 

Indian River County has more of an elderly population and the Sheriff's Office has established a program, called "We Care", that is for the security and well-being of people that live alone who would like regular contact with someone who cares.
