The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is seeking proposals to examine the problem of elder abuse, mistreatment, and neglect through the collection of data on cases of suspected elder abuse referred to Adult Protective Services (APS) agencies and cases reported to local law enforcement. The goals of this program are two-fold: 1) to examine the characteristics of cases of suspected elder abuse referred to APS and/or reported to police, in order to understand routes of reporting of elder abuse, as well as whether certain case characteristics impact case outcomes; and 2) to ascertain the feasibility of an ongoing and expanded collection of administrative data on cases of suspected elder abuse, mistreatment and neglect.
