A Policy Perspective on Elder Justice Through APS and Law Enforcement Collaboration

A Policy Perspective on Elder Justice Through APS and Law Enforcement Collaboration Summary The policy issues involved in the social problem of elder victimization could fill volumes. Even the policy issues involved in the new concept of elder justice are multi-faceted. Through the lens of a policy analysis perspective, the history, ideologies, politics, social movements, and economics of policies that promote the collaboration between adult protective services and law enforcement are examined. The analysis of state and local policies as well as a promising federal legislative initiative will, hopefully, help policy advocates understand from where the movement toward collaboration between adult protective services and law enforcement has come as well as where it may be headed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal Of Gerontological Social Work Taylor & Francis
