About DC TROV: To better respond to older survivors of abuse, neglect, and exploitation in DC and increase the ability of governmental agencies, victim assistants, law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, and local courts to recognize, assist, investigate, and prosecute elder abuse, a multidisciplinary team convened in 2014. The District’s Collaborative Training & Response for Older Victims is a partnership of Network for Victim Recovery of DC; Adult Protective Services, MPD, Legal Counsel for the Elderly; United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia; DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence; DC Office on Aging; DC Forensic Nurse Examiners Program; Office of the Attorney General for DC; DV Unit of the Superior Court; and DC's Long Term Care Ombudsmen.

The goal of this event is to help participants identify elder abuse, utilize local resources, and promote collaboration and communication. For questions, please contact training team leader Andrea Gleaves at agleaves@dccadv.org.
