Thanks to Citizens Bank, residents of Rockcastle Health & Rehabilitation Center in Brodhead, Kentucky will live in a safer and even more secure environment. Citizens Bank recently joined the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation (SHCPF), and is helping to protect those seniors by funding the Senior Crimestoppers program for seniors residing in this care facility.

The Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation is a national organization that serves as a way for banks to use to fulfill their federally mandated Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) requirements through providing aid to low and moderate income individuals in their local community. The Foundation’s mission is to provide safe and secure living environments for our nation’s senior nursing home residents, many of whom are low and moderate income individuals, through the operation of the nationally-acclaimed Senior Crimestoppers program.

Crime against the elderly in our society is a longstanding, constant battle that can be reduced and prevented through the operation of the Senior Crimestoppers program in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Senior Crimestoppers is a coordinated set of components that work together to create a zero tolerance to crime platform in senior housing facilities. Components include personal lockboxes for the residents, cash rewards up to $1,000 paid anonymously for information about wrongdoing of any kind, and effective, on-going education and training for staff members and residents. Senior Crimestoppers has reduced all aspects of crime in participating facilities by 94%.

“Senior Crimestoppers is a way for an administrator to further enhance the lives of the residents they serve. They all work very hard to provide safe, secure, comfortable living environments and their desire to implement the program is just one more example of this. Implementing this program does not mean that the facility currently has a crime problem, but that the administrator is proactively finding a way to keep problems from occurring in the future,” said Terry Rooker, president of Senior Crimestoppers.

“Citizens Bank is proud to be the sponsor of this wonderful program for the residents of the Rockcastle Health and Rehabilitation Center. Our community is blessed to have this wonderful facility and Citizens Bank is excited to be partnering with them to bring these much needed services. Citizens Bank is committed to partnering with local business and organizations to help make the lives of those who live in our communities better,” said Corey Craig, President/CEO of Citizens Bank.
