cool app for California law enforcement investigating elder abuse

One in ten older Americans experiences abuse or neglect each year. The numbers of abuse reports are growing at the same time that resources for agency responses are shrinking. To help California law enforcement in their work responding to abuse of elders and dependent adults (vulnerable adults with disabilities), the Center of Excellence on Elder Abuse and Neglect has partnered with the nonprofit Institute on Aging to develop a mobile app guide or "cheat sheet."

Named "368+ Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse Guide for CA Law Enforcement" in reference to CA Penal Code 368, this product was developed with advice and assistance generously provided by colleagues from law enforcement, civil law, and medicine.

368+ Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse Guide for CA Law Enforcement is now available for Droid devices, iPhones, and iPads. It can also be viewed on your mobile web browser.

For a limited time, this app is available free of charge, thanks to supporters like The Archstone Foundation, San Francisco Department on the Status of Women, and UniHealth Foundation. www.centeronelderabuse.org/368ElderAbuseCA.asp
