Advanced Law Enforcement Training: Neglect & Financial Exploitation of Elders
Join us for a unique opportunity to enhance your current and future investigations into the neglect and financial exploitation of older adults. These types of crime are often hard to identify and frequently go unreported but can be devastating to the victim and are only expected to increase as our population ages.
This special one day training event, led by Page Ulrey, Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney and national expert on elder abuse cases, will focus on the elements needed to build a successful case when investigating these complex types of crime.
The training is available on either June 8th or 9th and is open to detectives, investigators, supervisors, front line (first responding) officers and prosecutors. There is no cost for this training which also offers 7.5 POST Credits. Pre-registration is required.
Attendees can expect to come away with additional information about elder abuse and advanced investigative strategies to enhance older victims’ safety and hold offenders accountable.
Case studies will be used throughout the day to illustrate the learning points and all content will be considered in relation to Utah's specific statutes.
