Police Engagement And Prevention
Supt. Critchlow explains how policing has changed over time, particularly around changing community views that elder abuse is a matter "to be dealt with privately". Supt. Critchlow discusses the importance of Police engaging with communities, and working with third parties such as human services and health. He argues that hospital emergency departments can provide a window of opportunity for early intervention of elder abuse. He also discusses the view that laws specific to elder abuse could help raise awareness that elder abuse is unacceptable behaviour.
