BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A large crowd attended the annual Seniors and Lawmen Together (SALT) Expo Tuesday.

At the expo, vendors lined up with freebies, played games, and held info sessions. One thing the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office suggested to seniors is to remember what they've posted about themselves on social media since it's a perfect spot for grabbing little details.

"The internet has made it real easy to get people's information. Because it's volunteered via Facebook, all these other social sites, so you can find out a lot of information about someone, call 'em up, and give them just that little bit of nugget of information that they need to where they think, 'Hey, this person knows who I am! They might be legit,'" said Lt. Chad Parker with EBRSO.
