Program Costs and Results

FREE

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.


PAID

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.

CUMULATIVE INCIDENCE PROJECTION:

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.

ACTUAL INCIDENTS:

This figure represents the total number of reported crime incidents in all member facilities since their program commencement dates.

INCIDENT REDUCTION PERCENTAGE:

The statistical impact that Senior Crimestoppers is making on the community. As of July 1, 2018 the reduction percentage is at 95%!

  • “We love the fact that this program provides residents with personal lockboxes; an anonymous tip line for reporting crime incidents, and effective, ongoing education for staff members and residents. Tipsters who help solve or prevent incidents receive a cash reward which overcomes apathy.”

    – Faith Levesque, Administrator, Highland Rehab and Nursing Center, Middletown, NY

  • “The lockboxes enhance the security of the program; however, the power of education cannot be understated. Helping seniors know what to be on the lookout for in terms of scams and wrongdoing is essential and can stop potential crime before it occurs.”

    – Michele Boone, NHA, Grandview Nursing and Rehabilitation, Danville, PA

Protecting Your Staff

“It was a different staff when they learned this was their program.”


Education and awareness programs include the following:

  • In-service videos for management, staff, residents and their families.
  • Employee oath sheets that confirm everyone has an understanding of the program and agrees to abide by its policies.
  • New employee orientation sets the tone and expectations that your facility has a zero-tolerance policy toward crime.
  • Detailed operations manual for administrators and facility staff.
  • Printed guide summarizing Senior Crimestoppers for new residents and family members.

“We view the program as a win-win situation.”

“Residents, as well as staff, feel more secure knowing we have zero tolerance for crime.”
