The Sheriff's Office partners with Florida's Attorney General to bring Seniors vs. Crime to Alachua County. The program goal of Seniors vs. Crime is to reduce victimization of senior citizens who are often targeted for specific crimes based on their age. The program is staffed by Senior Sleuth volunteers and provides direct consumer protection services to seniors who may have been victimized or otherwise taken advantage of by businesses or service providers. Civil cases are referred to Seniors vs. Crime. Criminal cases are referred to law enforcement. For Gainesville and surrounding areas Seniors vs. Crime is open every Wednesday and Thursday from 11am to 3pm in a storefront just inside the main entrance to the Sheriff's Office.
