About This Product


The goal of this training program is to educate law enforcement on how to best respond and assist elder and dependent adults. The law regarding required notifications for these investigations has changed, and this training program will highlight those changes. This training will also provide the viewer with insight on the importance of investigating and reporting abuse against elder and dependent adults.

Meets Mandates: Penal Code 13515 and POST Regulation 1081.

Informational/Individual Viewing: This viewing mode allows an individual trainee or a small group of trainees to view the training video without formal (classroom) facilitation by an instructor. Features the same scenarios and questions or activities as the “Facilitated Group Course” track. Individual viewers may view sample group discussions, followed by comments from subject matter experts that reiterate and reinforce the teaching points. A "Student Workbook" document (PDF) is downloadable.

Instructions: Videos do not receive automatic CPT because an agency is required to facilitate discussion of the video before submitting an EDI course roster for credit. Only then is course credit for this video recorded in each officer’s or dispatcher's POST Training Profile. After viewing the video, you will see an ”Email Notification” link that will generate a “Verification of Viewing” that you may email to your training manager to let them know you have completed viewing the video and are ready to discuss it.
