Senior Consumer Protection Advisory Council

The Attorney General's Senior Consumer Protection Advisory Council is a priority for Attorney General Schmidt's administration. Under the Chairmanship of former Attorney General Bob Stephan, the focus of this group is to create awareness of scams targeting the elderly and discuss means of education and prevention. The council also encourages agencies to create and sustain working partnerships so outreach can be done quickly on new concerns.
