SUFFOLK COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT REACHES OUT TO BRIGHTON SENIORS


A Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department officer, Deputy Abe Ayuso, visited the Covenant House senior housing apartments Wednesday, December 6, to reach out to Suffolk County senior citizens. Deputy Ayuso spent time with more than 100 of the development’s residents, speaking about public safety, and bringing the Sheriff’s Department Elderly ID program.

The Elderly ID program provides Suffolk County Seniors with colored identification cards. The cards include a photo of the cardholder, his or her name, address, blood type, and medical history, and the name and phone number of the cardholder’s physician and an emergency contact. The information is vital in an emergency situation and the ID card is an important aid to medical responders.

In addition to providing seniors with ID cards, Deputy Ayuso handed out booklets on senior safety and offered advice about how the Brighton seniors can protect themselves.

“I love coming out with the Elderly ID program,” Ayuso said. “Sheriff Cabral is committed to making Suffolk County a safer place, and this is a great way to do it.”
