Abstract:

The elderly are differentially affected by crime and the fear of crime due to their increased vulnerability and, as such, warrant a certain degree of specialized handling and understanding by the police. The information presented in this thesis will enhance police knowledge of the elderly and their problems and the recommendations in the thesis, if adopted, will greatly aid in the establishment of better communication between the police and the elderly and, ideally, result in less elderly victimization and a better living environment and quality of life for the elderly.
