AARP MN - Spotlight on Elder Abuse

Start Date:10/7/2020

Start Time:6:30 PM CDT

Duration:90 minutes


Older adults, especially those living alone, are prime targets for crooks, in part because they have assets like Social Security and retirement savings and tend to be isolated. These seniors are routinely targeted by unknown scammers, but they can also be victimized by family, friends and caregivers. This type of elder abuse can be difficult to spot and even harder to stop. This free webinar will cover how to spot the signs of elder financial abuse. We’ll be joined by former San Diego Deputy District Attorney, Paul Greenwood.

Paul Greenwood

Former Deputy District Attorney

San Diego DA Office

Newly retired Deputy District Attorney Paul Greenwood was a lawyer in England for 13 years. After relocating to San Diego in 1991 he passed the California Bar and joined the DA's office in 1993. For twenty-two years, Paul headed up the Elder Abuse Prosecution Unit at the San Diego DA's Office. In 1999, California Lawyer magazine named Paul as one of their top 20 lawyers of the year in recognition of his pioneering efforts to pursue justice on behalf of senior citizens. He has prosecuted over 750 felony cases of both physical and financial elder abuse. He has also prosecuted ten murder cases, including one death penalty case. In March 2018 Paul retired from the San Diego DA's office to concentrate on sharing lessons learned from his elder abuse prosecutions with a wider audience. In October 2018 he was given a lifetime achievement award by his former office. Paul now spends much of his post retirement time consulting on elder abuse cases and providing trainings to law enforcement and Adult Protective Services agencies across the country and internationally. He is also involved as the criminal justice board member of National Adult Protective Services Association.
