Dementia Training for Law Enforcement Personnel: Building Partnerships to Enhance Community Safety Thursday, February 24, 2022, 1:00-2:00 PM ET REGISTER As Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias become more common, 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 key challenges and lessons learned. Participants will learn strategies for successful outreach and program development that they can use to build partnerships with law enforcement in their own communities.
