A leaflet explaining the scheme has been distributed throughout the three wards.
Insp. Maurice Kiddle, who is responsible for the scheme, said Safer Senior aimed to give older people a better quality of life. "By building up knowledge of the needs of our elderly residents, we aim to provide a range of advice, help and assistance," he said.
He added that while the over 65s formed 12 per cent of the population of Holland sector 3.5 per cent were crime victims.
"It is important we minimise the impact this "fear of crime" has on the quality of life for the elderly in our community. This scheme will aim to achieve this, both by making further contact with victims of crime in this age group and by providing reassurance to other elderly residents through personal contact."
