Henderson seniors learn how to prevent crime

HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) - Some seniors are learning what they can do to prevent becoming victims of crime.

Andy Beshear, Democratic candidate for Attorney General, talked with seniors Tuesday about his plans to stop scammers.

He touted his new Senior Protection Plan.

It's intended to protect seniors from telephone scams.

"And I think we do that by addressing the major challenges that face Kentucky's families: child abuse, drug abuse, and scams," said Beshear.  "Now, we're here in particular today to preview our Senior Protection Plan."

Through this initiative, he hopes to raise awareness of the types of scams and keep Kentucky seniors safe.
