How to Work Collaboratively with APS
In collaboration with the Administration for Community Living, APS Technical Assistance Resource Center and the Elder Justice Initiative, EAGLE created three factsheets on how law enforcement can work collaboratively with Adult Protective Services (APS). Through these factsheets, you can get a better understanding of what APS is and how they can be a partner in combatting elder abuse.

EAGLE’s partner entity, National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) has also developed a series of fact sheets to help you better understand the role of APS and how they partner with law enforcement.

EAGLE is proud to partner with The National APS Training Center (NATC) who serves as a source of quality education for adult protective services (APS) professionals throughout the United States. APS professionals encounter a vast array of situations in their daily work that require them to be well trained to respond to older adults and adults with disabilities who may have experienced abuse, neglect, or exploitation.
