Elder Abuse Training For Law Enforcement Should Be Required in Florida Also !

Elder abuse training required some States
-Why Not in Florida ? Which has an elevated elderly population.

Every city police officer and deputy sheriff at a supervisory level and below who is assigned to field or investigative duties is required to complete an elder abuse training course certified by the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training. This mandate came about following the passage of Assembly Bill 870, sponsored by the Attorney General, in 1997 (Chapter 444).
