As the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia increases, law enforcement agencies across the country are increasingly called upon to respond to dementia-related incidents: wandering, abuse, domestic disturbances and more. By collaborating with local dementia support organizations, law enforcement entities can better identify, understand and support the needs of people living with dementia and those who care for them. This webinar will review the development of a successful local law enforcement dementia training program, describing the key challenges and lessons learned for its ongoing implementation. Participants will learn strategies for successful outreach and program development that they can use to develop partnerships with law enforcement in their communities.
Describe three key strategies for identifying and reaching out to law enforcement agencies in their region;
Explain at least four essential dementia training topics for law enforcement personnel; and
Define three elements of a successful voluntary registry program for vulnerable populations.
