Senior Services

Largo Police Department’s Senior Services Division provides innovative community resources and interagency coordination to Largo seniors through community connections that can help to improve their quality of life as well as reduce crime and the fear of crime. Senior residents and caregivers may find themselves in the difficult position of facing various aging-related concerns such as healthcare problems, cognitive decline, homelessness and many others, and simply do not know where to turn. In these cases, LPD Senior Services may be able to help, and can assist in navigating these challenges.
