Elder Abuse Investigations
Training for Law Enforcement and Other Investigators
About the Course
As first responders, law enforcement officers can play a key role in providing an effective response to elder abuse at the local level. These short e-learning modules offer law enforcement officers, investigators, and other first responders an opportunity to access training on elder abuse at any time, from anywhere. You may be working with local partners under an Abuse in Later Life Grant from the Office on Violence Against Women, or you may simply be seeking information about some aspect of handling elder abuse cases. In either case, the information in these modules will enhance your investigative skills, help you work effectively with older victims, and provide you with tools that can help keep victims safe and hold offenders accountable.
This training was created by the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life and is supported by Grant No. 2016-TA-AX-K077, awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice.
