Consumer Protection for our Aging Population

Our seniors are often the target of fraud and consumer rip offs.  As a consultant I have studied the most beneficial practices in other states as well as the areas where we fall short. In Clark County we have tackled some of the issues of fraud and abuse with the establishment of the Elder Justice Center at the Clark County Prosecutors Office.  In our state, however, we do not have  a coordinated approach among agencies that  allows our legal system to  prosecute people who prey on our senior citizens.  Internet crime is a part of this. We need a coordinated approach involving local and state agencies who can share information that will result in the effective prosecution of these crimes.
