What is S.A.L.T.?
The City of Lake Alfred coordinates with Polk County law enforcement and other professionals in the community who specialize in meeting the needs of seniors through planning, education, communication, cooperative strategies, and supportive services.
What is S.A.L.T.’s purpose?
- To decrease crime and the “fear” of crime in order to raise livability for our seniors
- To improve local law enforcement’s knowledge of the crime prevention needs of seniors
- To identify the concerns of local senior citizens
- To involve senior citizens in crime prevention and the educational efforts of S.A.L.T and to raise awareness in the community of these special issues
The City of Lake Alfred is seeking senior citizens, 50 years and older, who would like to donate their valuable time and talents to Polk County by sharing their life experiences with their community and by promoting safety and service programs to meet the needs of our local senior citizens.
How to Apply:
Membership on the S.A.L.T. committee is mostly composed of seniors from the community and is voluntary. Other members from the business, health care and legal sectors, service clubs and other community service agencies that are not seniors but have an interest in their safety and security are also accepted.
