The Minnesota Elder Justice Center (MEJC) is a statewide non-profit organization whose mission is to mobilize communities to prevent and alleviate abuse, neglect, and finanical exploitation of older and vulnerable adults. The MEJC focuses its work in four areas: (1) public awareness, (2) professional education and practice, (3) public policy and direct services.

The MEJC recently received funding from the Bremer Foundation to convene criminal justice and community partners across Minnesota to review and discuss the adaptation of a Lexipol model law enforcement policy on response to elder abuse. There will be four information gathering / listening sessions scheduled throughout Minnesota in early 2018. The first one was held on January 31, 2018, in Bemidji. The next two are being held in New Brighton and Mankato (See below for more information regarding dates/times/locations). The fourth meeting is yet to be determined. Law enforcement, prosecutors, adult protection workers, long-term care ombudsman, aging services and domestic violence/sexual assault programs are all invited to attend and provide input into the development of the model policy.

Mankato - Tuesday, April 10th - 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Subsequent to the information gathering / listening sessions, selected professionals from across the state will convene to provide input into possible additions to Lexipol model adult abuse policy to make it the best fit for Minnesota. The draft will be distributed to Minnesota law enforcement for final review and input. The finalized model policy / best practices will be presented and available in the fall of 2018.
