The police establish that retired persons and other senior citizens are frequent victims of different criminal offences, and this is why they presented this year various preventive measures.

At the festival, police officers gave advice to visitors of all generations and ages about what they can do for their safety: how to act to protect their property, and avoid dangerous situations, for example in public places, when using public transportation, when visited in their home by strangers, etc.

More about the preventive measures is available in the brochure Ne pozabite na varnost!, in which we point to the most frequent dangers and circumstances in everyday life in which you can easily become a victim of criminal offences. Perpetrators tend to choose places and victims who represent the least possible risk. This year we printed 10,000 brochures.
