U.S. Department of Justice Launches the Elder Justice Website
The new website, http://www.justice.gov/elderjustice/, offers resources for victims, family members, prosecutors, researchers, and anyone who works with older adults.
- Victims and family members will find information about how to report elder abuse and financial exploitation in all 50 states and the territories.
- Federal, State, and local prosecutors will find three different databases containing sample pleadings and statutes.
- Researchers in the elder abuse field may access a database containing bibliographic information for thousands of articles and reviews.
- Practitioners — including professionals of all types who work with elder abuse and its consequences — will find information about resources available to help them prevent elder abuse and assist those who have already been abused, neglected or exploited.
