Keeping our elderly safe from scams: RCMP London Detachment members deliver awareness presentation to the Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians
August 12, 2020
On July 29th, 2020, Cst. Rob George of the London Detachment facilitated a presentation to The Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians (AIAI). With the assistance of Cst. Jennifer George from CIS, they created and delivered a Zoom presentation to elders that covered common scams that are perpetrated on the elderly. With input from the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, the presentation was well received and members of the AIAI are looking forward to spreading the information to their communities. More presentations are being planned.
Cst. Rob George is an Indigenous member of the London Detachment and is currently assigned to Indigenous outreach within the detachment’s area of responsibility. Within this area, there are 5 separate communities that Cst. George has contact with. He works closely with the OPP’s Aboriginal Liaison group. This informal partnership is a new venture for the London Detachment and has seen early successes.
