Description & Services
DescriptionThe Halton Regional Police Service Elder Services Unit's mandate is to augment existing strategies and implement new ones that address the needs and concerns of Halton Region's older adults.  
Working in partnership with community service agencies, the HRPS' Elder Services Unit responds and assists seniors and their families in a number of key areas, including: 
* issues of neglect  
* financial abuse  
* physical and/or psychological mistreatment  
To deter and prevent the perpetuation of crime against seniors living and working in the community, the Halton Regional Police Service Elder Service's Unit offers a series of topical presentations to older adults, their families and service providers.  
HRPS' Elder Services Unit consists of three Seniors Crime Investigators, an Elder Services Coordinator, District Community Response Officers and the Victim Services Unit.
