An initiative towards prevention of crime against elderly in Mumbai

I am glad to know that the police department in Mumbai from Dahisar (E) to Goregaon (E) belt have taken up the security of elderly as a serious issue and have thus started collecting information about senior citizens along with their domestic help, driver and other service providers who visit their home regularly (http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2013-06-25/mumbai/40184913_1_dahisar-police-campaign-senior-citizens).

If executed effectively this exercise is going to be a valuable initiative towards controlling crime against elderly and thereby promoting their well-being. For its successful implementation, police department alone won't be able to achieve much success, until and unless the elderly and their family are fully aware of such exercise and are ready to take proactive measures from their end.
