July 16: Elder Exploitation. FREE MONTHLY COMMUNITY SAFETY FORUM IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE LAS VEGAS METROPOLITAN POLICE DEPARTMENT AND SPONSORED BY NV ENERGY
The Mob Museum’s monthly Community Safety Forums continue on Sunday, July 16, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Presented in partnership with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and sponsored by NV Energy, the event will focus on elder exploitation. The number of elder abuse reports continues to increase every year. Research has shown that for every case reported, five go unreported. Abuse of the elderly comes in many forms. Not only food deprivation, neglect, isolation or physical harm, elder exploitation can also include actions where someone takes financial advantage of the vulnerable elderly. Investigate what actually constitutes abuse and how to report it.
