British Columbia Association of Community Response Networks
This program is for any individual, agency, or community service provider who has regular, ongoing contact with adults as part of their daily routine.
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION:
This initiative is designed to provide seniors with a safe and anonymous method to report suspected criminal abusive behavior. Seniors are often too ashamed, embarrassed and fearful of retaliation to report directly to police or persons of authority. Language and cultural barriers may prevent older immigrant adults from reporting crime.
Participants will learn how the program addresses the need to expand awareness of elder abuse, including financial abuse, domestic violence, bullying, and fraud, the boundaries of consent and illegal behaviour, and what to do if consent is breached.
Presenter Linda Annis is the executive director of Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers, and is a member of the Surrey Board of Trade – Crime and Justice Committee, the Vancouver Board of Trade Community Safety Committee, and the Kwantlen College Criminology Curriculum Advisory Committee.
Provincial Learning Events are held the 3rd Tuesday of each month except December, June, July & August.
