Keeping Seniors Safe (KSS) is a program that has been developed in conjunction with the Volunteer Resources Section of the Montgomery County Police Department. The KSS program was established to increase awareness of safety issues within the senior community and to provide guidance and resources to seniors in regard to these issues.
Morton A. Davis is the program coordinator for KSS. He is a member of the Montgomery County Commission on Aging and a resident of Leisure World of Maryland. Davis is actively involved in senior safety issues and is available (along with other KSS volunteers) to attend your senior event or community meeting. He and other volunteers can speak on the following safety topics:
- Safe shopping habits and parking lot safety
- Home safety and personal preparedness for an emergency
- Fraud and scams
- Identity theft identification and prevention
- Who to call for emergency and non-emergency needs
A KSS team briefing generally lasts one hour, which includes time for audience questions and comments. The KSS team will also provide your group with additional senior safety resources and handouts.
To learn more about the KSS program or to have KSS speakers at your meeting on any of the above topics, please contact the MCPD Volunteer Resources Section at 240-773-5625. You may also email us at Police.KSS@montgomerycountymd.gov for more information.
