CARSON CITY, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) — The Nevada Attorney General's office has released a resource guide for law enforcement across the state when it comes to investigating cases of elder abuse, neglect or exploitation.
Attorney General Adam Laxalt said in a statement the guide will help law enforcement recognize signs of elder abuse and help the elderly get services they need.
Laxalt's office applied for and received a federal grant for enhanced training and services. Three resources teams have also been formed to look into issues, including a team for Washoe County and rural Nevada communities.
Grant dollars have also been earmarked for direct services to elder victims of domestic and sexual violence, stalking, financial exploitation and neglect.
