The Administration for Community Living invites Adult Protective Services (APS) agencies and community-based organizations in the aging and disability networks to learn about tools and approaches to address elder financial exploitation.
This webinar will describe how federal agencies are teaming up to help law enforcement agencies and financial institutions more effectively respond to financial exploitation and how you can join the fight. It will also cover how APS can partner with law enforcement, financial institutions, and community based organizations to enhance a coordinated community response to financial exploitation in ways that lead to the effective delivery of services to victims and prosecutions of perpetrators.
Specifically, the webinar will explain the Memorandum on Financial Institution and Law Enforcement Efforts to Combat Elder Financial Exploitation, issued jointly by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Department of Treasury, and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) on August 30, 2017. The memo encourages coordination among law enforcement agencies, financial institutions, and adult protective service agencies and describes how Suspicious Activity Reports can aid law enforcement investigating elder financial exploitation cases.
Webinar speakers include:
- Naomi Karp, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
- Stephanie Whittier Eliason, Administration for Community Living
- Jennifer Hale, Adult Protective Services, Oklahoma
- Tamsen Rea, FinCEN
