ABSTRACT

Attorney General's Annual Report to Congress on Department of Justice Activities to Combat Elder Fraud and Abuse [October 18, 2019]   [open pdf - 20MB]

From the Executive Summary: "Our team has pursued elder justice cases, targeting criminals here and abroad, with ever increasing passion, sophistication, and cooperation. [...] While prosecuting these crimes and advancing prevention efforts are key mechanisms in bringing justice to abused older Americans, it is also important to provide the resources necessary to help victims recover and ultimately regain their sense of well-being. This report highlights the Department's dedication to supporting victims, including the FBI developing a new Victim Specialist position to provide crisis intervention, to conduct needs assessments, and to refer victims to resources and referrals when appropriate. These are laudable accomplishments, but we realize there is much more work to be done."
