Seniors were given general safety tips by Gunnedah Police's Inspector Michael Wurth at the Railway Hotel on Thursday.
The event continued Seniors Festival celebrations for 2019, and Gunnedah Crime Prevention Committee Chair Colleen Fuller said "it was a great day".
Inspector Wurth warned the elderly community members about a number of recent scams, including Nigerian scams and roofing and house maintenance scams, where scammers ask for an incredibly large amount of money.
He also encouraged the seniors to look out for their personal safety when out and about, as well as vehicle and house safety.
"[It's] about arming people with good information to assist and protect themselves," Inspector Wurth said.
"I would encourage the community to take basic steps to make sure their homes are secure. Don't leave doors and windows open, and speak to neighbours when you're going away."
Inspector Wurth stressed the importance of seniors and other community members reporting sightings.
"Report to us, it doesn't matter how minor it is, so we can base our tasks and patrols on information we get from the community," he said.
"We've got a whole town of eyes, and they're out greatest resource.
"If they're not telling us, then we're only getting a very small snippet of what's going on around town."
