Abstract:

This report outlines the relationship between older Australians, crime, crime prevention and fear of crime. It discusses the risks for older Australians of becoming victim to various types of crime, and finds that older people in Australia are far less likely to be victims of crime than people in other age groups. The report recommends targeting strategies both to prevent victimisation and to counter older people's fears about becoming a victim of crime, as such fearfulness can potentially limit quality of life and lead to social isolation. These strategies are best implemented at a local government level, as part of a community safety strategy, and in partnership with other key agencies and stakeholders.
