Our Senior Protection Seminars alert seniors to common scams and schemes that target the elderly, while conveying tips on ways to safeguard finances from financial exploitation. Seminars are held at senior centers across the county and are facilitated by District Attorney Ryan. Staff from the District Attorney’s Elder Protection Unit, representatives from local police departments, protective service workers, and bank employees participate in a panel presentation, followed by a question and answer session.
District Attorney Ryan has set a benchmark for combatting elder abuse at the community level. Through education, prevention programs, and public private- partnerships, the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office is on the forefront of addressing this troubling problem. With exponential growth expected among the state’s senior population over the next decade, we have worked to establish a number of unique initiatives sooner rather than later.
