QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Some Quincy senior citizens are getting an education on police, fire, and other emergency services in the area.

 the 2013 Senior Police Academy began Wednesday afternoon.

One of the speakers was Adams County coroner James Keller, but other topics will be presented by the Quincy Police department and Fire Department, as well as the Adams County State's Attorney's office.

There will also be a tour of the Army National Guard armory.

Elder service officer Tom Liesen says some of these topics are very pertinent to senior citizens. 

"It's general education, general warnings, one of the sessions we have coming up is on Medicaid fraud and food stamp abuse, next week is a bicycle demo, and building inspections," he said.

The Senior Police Academy will run every Wednesday until May 22nd, and then there is a dinner and graduation ceremony.
