ELDER JUSTICE RESOURCES
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) recognizes the need for additional resources to identify and combat elder abuse, neglect, and financial fraud and scams that target our nation’s older adults. As the baby boomers age, there become an even greater need for federal, state, and local law enforcement officers to be prepared for their critical role in our response to the crime of elder abuse and financial exploitation.
The DOJ’s Elder Justice Initiative (EJI) has developed an unprecedented amount of tools, training, and resources to assist law enforcement. The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) is making its resources as well as EJI’s available below. Please scroll down to see and use the interactive investigative tools, officer checklists, sample protocols, state statutes, webinars, podcasts, resource maps, and training videos to be available at your fingertips.
These resources are constantly being updated and added to so please check back often.
