This practice and implementation can be utilized in rural and urban healthcare centers, including hospitals and community clinics.
The crime of domestic violence is complex and law enforcement officers often feel frustrated and discouraged when responding.

This video highlights the realities and complexities of domestic violence and provides strategies for effective investigations.
“The IACP in collaboration with PAE and the Elder Justice Initiative, U.S. Department of Justice, is addressing these needs through the development of a:
Six-part roll call video series to enable law enforcement to better identify signs of elder abuse and recognize evidence that can lead to the successful prosecution of criminals.
Excel-based financial investigative tool that can help identify patterns of exploitation and develop graphic representations of suspected criminal activity.”
