“Exploitation of our seniors is a despicable crime,” Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said. “Under this administration, the Department of Justice has taken sweeping action to stop crimes of elder fraud and abuse, and we are working to do more.  Unfortunately, such crimes pose a special challenge in rural communities like the one where I grew up, in which law enforcement agencies can be spread thin and where there often are fewer support services available.  Today’s summit reflects the Department’s commitment to ensuring that our state and local partners have the most current resources and robust support to combat elder fraud and abuse in their communities.  We all have a role to play in this fight and I am grateful for the support of Secretary Perdue and all of our federal, state and local partners who made this summit possible as we advance the goal of elder justice in rural America.”
