Prosecuting Cases of Elder Abuse

This panel will feature NIJ-funded research that has direct, practical implications for the prosecution of elder abuse cases.

The panel will also provide the results from an evaluation of five innovative court-based models that target perpetrators of elder abuse.

Research Meetings and Workshops

NIJ learns from the people who work day-to-day with the issues. We sponsor meetings, workshops, and working groups that bring together researchers, policymakers, technologists, and practitioners.

These meetings generate a rich exchange of ideas. They guide future research and help ensure that NIJ's research, development and evaluation activities meet real-world needs.
