The Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse Prevention Council was created through the attorney general’s regulatory authority under Kansas law to advise and make recommendations to the Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation Unit, which works with the Kansas Department for Children and Families, Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, law enforcement and prosecutors statewide to help prevent and prosecute crimes against vulnerable adults across Kansas.
The council’s duties include establishing working groups on specific topics, developing local or regional multi-disciplinary teams to assist local authorities in investigating abuse and neglect, as well as coordinating and engaging in education and outreach activities including creating a publicly available clearinghouse of information on elder and dependent adult abuse prevention.
