Recognizing that many victims do not report crimes based upon fear of reprisals or embarrassment, District Attorney Soares has created several outreach programs designed to encourage reporting of crimes perpetrated on the elderly.

Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (SALT) is designed to encourage the reporting of crimes by seniors.

Once notified, a prosecutor, an investigator, and a victim advocate specialist, will travel to the home of the senior. There is a team effort approach to bring justice to every senior who are preyed upon in Albany County.
