The GNR, through the Special Community-oriented Policing Programmes, has developed activities markedly of social nature in the field of human rights, in order to protect the vulnerable victims of crime, mainly the elderly.
To achieve this goal, since 2011 the GNR has been developing the “Senior Census” Project that aims to make geo-referencing and identify the number of elderly citizens who are isolated and/or live alone, covering the entire national territory, signalling in 2016, 43.322 elderly.
This geo-referencing allows the GNR to target the patrolling effort and respond more effectively to the demands of elderly citizens in in situations of greater vulnerability.
The Project started in January 2011 and is still running.
