Purpose: to enhance the personal safety and security of older people.
As is the case with all Australians, older people are concerned about their safety. People aged more than 65 years are counted as our older population. In Australia today there are 2.4 million people in this age group. The numbers are growing rapidly, with one-quarter of the population projected to be over 65 years by the middle of the century.
CSI has developed a key crime prevention strategy that includes officer presence for aging population, and community residential living. It demonstrates ways forward for achieving the goal of healthier and safer aging, particularly in aged care accommodation living.
The broad pattern of victimisation for personal offences on the aged population is concerning. Regardless of risk, crime can impact greatly on older peoples lives. Some groups of older people are more afraid of crime than others. Those most likely to be afraid are those who:
There is research that suggests a relationship between anxiety about crime, community involvement and self-confidence. The more isolated older people become from others, the more likely they are to lose confidence and trust, and to withdraw further. Overall, physical and mental health benefits can result when people live in accessible, safe, well designed, thoughtful structures and landscapes with enhanced security measures.
CSI have the demonstrated experience and trust to provide a sustained quality premium security guarding service. We are committed to creating enhanced personal safety and security for older people. All CSI members are well credentialed and self-motivated to providing visible presence and timely response to all incidents inclusive of suspicious persons/activities.
It is our aim to foster strong working relationships with other stakeholders including local police. Education with residents is important and our workshops are both interactive and informative. Behind the scenes CSI are the conduit for creating greater synergies. The below research points can contribute to creating a safer community :

Essentially, Security Risk Assessments allow you to identify, analyse and evaluate the security risks that face your organisation, its assets and its people. From here, you become better equipped to mitigate or address these risks.
By conducting an SRA, all areas of your organisation become responsible for and aware of the security risks they face. This leads to greater communication, collaboration, decision making and preparation from every corner of your organisation. Security Risk Assessments are designed to identify security weaknesses within your organisation and to design an effective action plan in response. This ultimately strengthens your organisation, allows you to take ownership of your security and to allocate resources effectively.
