A facility that has 51% or more Medicaid certified residents or 51% or more low- to moderate-income residents may have all their programming sponsored by a local bank.
The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) of 1977 requires banks to enhance the lives of low- to moderate-income citizens in their communities in a variety of ways. Banking regulators have approved banks’ participation with CRA Partners and the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation as an acceptable way to meet a portion of these federally mandated requirements.
Any facilities without the above qualifications or those waiting on bank sponsorship may pay directly for the Senior Crimestoppers program, and do not need to meet a Medicaid or low- to moderate-income quota.
Liability and litigation event reduction
Positive community and media exposure
Enhanced risk management and regulatory compliance
Potential for stabilized or reduced insurance premiums
Statistical analysis of Senior Crimestoppers member facilities
This “reverse forecast” estimates how many total incidents of crime would have occurred at all participating facilities had they not undertaken a comprehensive, proactive crime prevention program. The projection figure is modeled on confidential crime incidence data supplied by each participating facility at the time of their program commencement. This prior incidence rate is prorated and factored by month via the Senior Crimestoppers Crime-Trac System.
This figure represents the total number of reported crime incidents in all member facilities since their program commencement dates.
The statistical impact that Senior Crimestoppers is making on the community. As of July 1, 2018 the reduction percentage is at 95%!
