FC 110 - Financial Crimes Against Seniors (Jan 2019, California)

Thursday Jan 31, 2019 - 08:00am to 05:00pm UTC
Event Description: 

This course promotes a multiagency approach to the problem of financial exploitation of senior citizens. Bringing together law enforcement personnel and adult protective services investigators, the course enhances students' investigative skills and interviewing techniques while facilitating networking and cooperation that can extend out of the classroom and into real cases. Topics include recognizing elder abuse, working with victims, and identifying perpetrators, as well as resources for investigation and community awareness. Students work together to conduct a mock investigation into a hypothetical case. 

Course structure:

  • Financial investigation basics. Explore what constitutes elder abuse and how family and trusted persons can be perpetrators, as well as statutes and sentencing enhancements.
  • Senior victims. Understand reasons for vulnerability, as well as special needs like Alzheimer's or dementia.
  • Resources. Learn about community awareness and investigative resources.
  • Hands-on experience. Work a case as part of an investigative team.
