Course description
This course promotes a multi-agency approach to the problem of financial exploitation of senior citizens. Bringing together law enforcement personnel and adult protective services investigators, the course enhances students' investigative skills and interviewing techniques while facilitating networking and cooperation that can extend out of the classroom and into real cases.

Students work together to conduct a mock investigation into a hypothetical case.
