Protecting the Defenseless: Abuse
Against Elders and Vulnerable Adults

June 7-9
Tampa, FL

Sponsored by NDAA. The challenges facing prosecutors, local law enforcement, investigators in prosecutors’ offices, victim services specialists, and agencies designed to protect the welfare of elders and individuals with disabilities seem to be increasing exponentially with the growing numbers of elders in our society and the small percentage of reporting of cases involving both elders and individuals with disabilities. With the advent of the use by defendants of 21st century sources of evidence, the deepening myths associated with victims of these complex cases, the under reporting of these cases, and the multitude of justifications being promulgated by the defense we see an amplified need to spread education highlighting cutting edge techniques and practical strategies to all those working together to ensure justice in our communities and provide voices to the seemingly voiceless.

Course tuition: $395 for members; $495 for non-members. $50 discount for attendees from the same office.
