The Consumer Protection Committee educates the public on various scams and con games, including Identity Theft, that target citizens.
We publish monthly articles in "The Messenger", maintain a Consumer Protection information corner in Conway Hall at the Costick Center, and distribute information at Project Healthy Living and open houses as well as on cable shows.
A presentation of Identity Theft can be arranged for organizations by calling the COA telephone number at (248) 473•1895.

Project Healthy Living is a health screening and education effort providing our community with a comprehensive battery of free and low cost health tests to anyone 18 years or older.
