Enhancing State and Local Elder Justice Efforts

Enhancing State and Local Elder Justice Efforts

Bolstering State and Local Justice Efforts

The Department supports the efforts of state and local law enforcement, and other elder justice professionals, through the development of training, resources, and tools.  For example:

  • The Elder Abuse Prosecutor video series covers many of the critical elements of investigating and prosecuting elder abuse, caregiver neglect, or financial exploitation.
  • The Department supported the development of the Elder Abuse Guide for Law Enforcement (EAGLE), a web module designed for law enforcement to quickly find resources to respond to elder abuse. 
  • Based on the EAGLE, the EAGLE Online Training is the first elder abuse training for law enforcement that has been certified by the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST). 

To promote the proliferation of elder abuse multidisciplinary teams, the Department launched the first Multidisciplinary Team Technical Assistance Center, including both live technical assistance and online resources. As part of this effort, the Elder Justice Network Locator Map displays where these networks are located throughout the country.
