Please note that this info sheet is useful on its own, but is also part of the Community and Justice System Working Together Education Kit.
More situations involving crimes against seniors are being reported to the police. In part, this is because police and people in communities are working together to make sure that older people are protected when they are in danger.
Understandably, there are questions about how the justice system works. This info sheet includes descriptions of the roles of police, the Crown council, victim service workers as well as information about compensation and complaints/appeals.
